Three Weeks to a New HIKE Year

This time of year is one of closure and renewal for the HIKE Fund, Inc. On June 16, 2018, Bethel #1 of Council Bluffs, Iowa made a HIKE Award Presentation to Maelee and her family. Maelee is four months old, and had a negative hearing screening at birth. After further testing, it was found that she had moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears and needed bilateral hearing aids. Maelee’s mother Katie states that when the audiologist put in her loaner hearing aids, she could tell immediately that Maelee was able to hear new sounds, and soon began to smile. Katie states she is very appreciative of the HIKE fund and the financial support which has allowed Maelee to have hearing aids.  Her new hearing aids will be pink!
