On Wednesday, May 18th, 2016, Fox31 News DENVER aired a clip on the Ear Community Organization that helped promote public awareness about Microtia and Atresia and hearing loss for “Better Hearing and Speech Month” for the month of May.

The Ear Community Organization has helped thousands of families since 2010 all over the world who have loved ones born with Microtia and Atresia (missing ears and the absence of an ear canal resulting in hearing loss).   The charitable organization helps obtain new bone anchored hearing devices for the needy with Microtia and Atresia and awards college scholarships as well.  Ear Community’s organization is the first of its kind, as a parent driven nonprofit, to host events all over the world that help bring families together so they can be educated on all options for Microtia and Atresia and so that families know they are not alone.  The organization has hosted nearly 30 family events all over the world and has donated over 70 bone anchored hearing devices to children and adults born with Microtia and Atresia.  The Ear Community website is a leading helpful resource and wealth of information for learning more about Microtia and Atresia for both, families and medical professionals.  The Ear Community website is translatable in 47 different languages.
