Don't let hearing challenges diminish your celebrations or mute your character.

Celebrating the Power of Sound: Tess’s Inspiring Journey

by | Oct 19, 2023 | Hearing Health, Hearing Loss, Patient Resources

Celebrations hold a special place in our hearts, providing moments of joy, unity, and memories that last a lifetime. However, the essence of any celebration lies in our ability to hear, communicate, and actively participate.

When these senses are diminished, it can lead to feelings of exclusion, depression, and a shrinking of one’s true character.

Unfurling the Story of Tess

In the heart of our Hearing Aid Source community, we encountered Tess, an exuberant eight-year-old with a penchant for all things pink. As her ninth birthday approached, her excitement was palpable. However, amidst this joy, Tess struggled with hearing, especially amidst background noise, which stifled her lively spirit and diminished her vibrant character.

Tess’s journey with us began through a hospital referral. A perforated eardrum since her early years had resulted in an unbalanced hearing ability. While her parents had ventured into the world of hearing aids before, their efforts to keep the device on Tess had been futile.

Building Trust, One Smile at a Time


On her first visit to our centre, Tess's apprehension was evident. The unfamiliar environment and the prospect of strangers examining her ears were understandably overwhelming. But with our dedicated team, playful activities, and, of course, the promise of pink equipment, Tess began to warm up.

However, her true, vibrant self was yet to surface.

Trust is a delicate thread that, once woven, binds us together. Our team at the centre recognizes this and places immense value on forging genuine connections. Every child, especially one like Tess who has faced challenges early in life, deserves an environment of compassion and understanding.

As Tess navigated her initial fears, our staff not only offered their expertise but also their patience and genuine interest in her well-being. The gentle nods of encouragement, the lighthearted jokes, and the genuine praises were all a part of our endeavour to assure Tess that she was in safe hands.

These seemingly small gestures are the stepping stones to building lasting trust, proving that sometimes, a simple smile can bridge the vastest of divides.

A Touch of Pink and the Power of Sound


The day of Tess's fitting was a spectacle in pink. Her attire echoed her love for the hue, and her eyes sparkled with anticipation. When presented with her pink equipment, her excitement was infectious. We made the experience memorable, engaging her with her favourite tunes and closely monitoring her reactions.

The transformation was magical. As her beloved songs played, Tess swayed and danced, her inhibitions melting away. Within moments, she was chatting animatedly, her voice rising above the background music. The room was charged with energy, with Tess's newfound confidence and joy taking centre stage.

It was a testament to the fact that when equipped with the right tools and support, one's true character can shine, unburdened by any limitations.
