Living with hearing loss can feel like climbing an endless series of sometimes thorny stairs over and over again.
In an article published in The Sun magazine in October 2022, local author Elana Kupor writes eloquently about her hearing loss, which began when she was a child, and about climbing the famous Thistle Steps in West Seattle. Elana’s writing reminded us how important it is to tell our stories.
Elana will join our February 1, 2023, HOPE meeting, when she’ll share her personal and evocative journey through hearing loss. We encourage you to read Elana’s article, then join us at the meeting and welcome Elana to our community.
Our Hearing Other People’s Experiences (HOPE) meetings are a safe, welcoming space where you can ask questions from your peers about anything and everything hearing loss related.
Facilitated by a caring, compassionate HOPE Crew, these monthly virtual meetings are free, live-captioned, and open to everyone with hearing loss and their friends and family. You’re also welcome to relax, listen, and spend time with people who understand what it’s like to live with hearing loss.
