On November 10, 2016
Bellevue, WA, November 10, 2016 –(PR.com)– Father and son, Lou and Win Whittaker featured in hearing loss awareness campaign.
In recognition of Luna Family Hearing’s annual Hear for the Holidays hearing loss awareness campaign, they wanted to share the story of a father and son supporting each others hearing loss and success with hearing aids from Luna Family Hearing.
Luna Family Hearing kicks off a Hear for the Holidays campaign for hearing loss awareness at all Luna Family Hearing locations throughout the Pacific Northwest each November and December to help families and friends as they gather for the Holiday season hear at their best by inviting anyone experiencing hearing difficulties to come in for a free hearing test.
Win Whittaker, mountaineer, adventurer and filmmaker, has had his hearing aid success story featured nationally. His father, Lou, observed Win’s success with hearing aids, which are smart phone compatible for control and accessibility of advanced features. On Win’s recommendation, Lou decided to do something about his own hearing difficulties and agreed to check out what Win describes as a “game changer in technology” offered at Luna Family Hearing.
Lou, a world-renowned mountaineer, adventurer, artist and author is constantly in challenging hearing environments and struggled to hear clearly before wearing hearing aids from Luna Family Hearing. Lou’s pursuing hearing aids to conquer his hearing difficulties on the recommendation of his son exemplifies what Luna Family Hearing’s annual Hear for the Holidays awareness campaign is all about – making sure you are hearing the best you can with your family and friends during the Holiday season and throughout the entire year. “At my age, to hear as good as I do is a miracle to me,” states Lou Whittaker.
This hearing loss awareness campaign is personal to John Luna, CEO of Luna Family Hearing. “I grew up with a father who had a hearing loss and know first hand what a positive change hearing aids can make with communication within a family for everyone involved especially during the Holidays with family and friends gathered together. If you or someone in your life is experiencing difficulty with their hearing, then encourage them to take the first step and get help. Lou and Win’s example and success with hearing aids, along with the thousands of other hearing impaired clients we serve in the Pacific Northwest, is exactly why we do what we do each day, to make positive changes in peoples lives helping them hear the best they can each day,” states John Luna.
