Back in November, we invited local people in Lubbock to take part in a special competition.
It gave one person the opportunity to win a free pair of hearing aids, as well as access to our expert ongoing audiological care.
Each year, we are brought to tears reading through your nominations and it’s not surprising that we find it hard to decide a winner.
However, this year, the winner spoke out to us and had the whole team teary-eyed.
After a year of somewhat unpredictability, it was truly remarkable to be able to give back to the community and change someone’s life for the better.
With that said, the winner of our 2021 Hear for the Holidays giveaway is… Joe!
The winner, Joe:
Joe has worked his entire life as a farmhand, of which has inevitably led to his hearing loss.
A couple years ago, he was in a car accident, which left him with severe injuries, and he has since lost the ability to work.
Most recently, his hearing has slowly deteriorated to a point where he can’t hear much of anything and struggles to perform even the simplest of tasks.
His family was aware that he needed hearing aids, but even making the first step seemed hard to accomplish. When they heard about Cornerstone Audiology’s Hear for the Holidays giveaway, they knew it was an opportunity to change Joe’s life for the better.
As soon as Joe found out he had won, he was reduced to tears and the whole family was delighted to reward him with this gift.
Joe and his whole family have felt the effects of his hearing loss firsthand. It’s often the family members who notice their loved one’s hearing loss first, so we were delighted to take the strain off the whole family.
We surprised Joe with a visit to his home and told him the news, and a couple weeks later, Joe was invited into the clinic for a comprehensive fitting of his brand-new hearing aids.
It was such an honor to be able to help people like Joe and connect them to their lives through the power of hearing.
A thank you on behalf of everyone at Cornerstone Audiology for taking part.
