Beulah woman receives gift of hearing this holiday season

Dec 2017 KKTV 11 News

Marin LiebAfter suffering from debilitating hearing loss in her mid-30s, Marin says she fell into the darkness that deafness can bring. "These implants have just literally brought me back from a point of not being able to communicate either socially or on the phone.” Christmas was a reminder of everything she was missing: hearing her children tear open gifts, festive music playing as they decorated the tree. Marin describes hearing loss during the holidays as being left out on a cold night, looking in at the warmth and light. "One of the traditions we have as a family is listening to music as we set up the Christmas tree and opening gifts and that type of thing. I could no longer do that. In fact, any music that was on it was even harder for me to hear anything," Marin said. This will be the first holiday in years where she will enjoy the season almost perfectly!

Marin’s hearing loss journey also inspired her daughter to become an audiologist! She's a fourth-year student at UC Health in Denver. Marin wants to share her story with the 48 million Americans who suffer from hearing loss and their families. Only a fraction of those affected will ever reach out for help. Because Christmas is so special to them, Marin and her daughter want to reach families and encourage them to explore the new hearing implant technologies available to all ages and all types of hearing loss.

This is the first holiday in many years that Beulah resident Marin Lieb is excited about celebrating with her family.
