Ear Community Kicks Off Its 2014 Microtia and Atresia Summer Family Picnics…

Hi Everyone!

2013 Chicago, Illinois Ear Community Microtia Picnic

2013 Chicago, Illinois Ear Community Microtia Picnic

Ear Community is proud to host seven more Microtia and Atresia family picnics this summer.  Last year, Ear Community hosted seven picnics that took place in Spain, the United Kingdom, and in the United States, helping bring almost 1,300 people together along with medical professionals and hearing device companies.  Ear Community’s picnics welcome Microtia and Atresia families including individuals born with Hemifacial Microsomia, Goldenhar Syndrome, and Treacher Collins.  When families come together at Ear Community picnics, they are given the opportunity to share experiences with each other, enjoy a Fun and FREE day, and learn about all of the options that are currently available.  Medical professionals also attend our Ear Community picnics helping families find the answers they are looking for.  The medical professionals who attend our picnics include some of the world’s best Microtia and Atresia plastic surgeon experts, ENTs, audiologists, therapists, and anaplastologists.  Our picnics are generously sponsored by many of the hearing device companies that market bone conduction hearing devices.  The hearing device organizations who participate in our events help families learn more about hearing loss and give families and individuals the chance to try on the latest hearing devices that are currently available.   Ear Community is always thankful for the help and funding that it receives, but most of all…we are thankful for the families and individuals who come together to attend our events making each picnic a memorable one and a rewarding experience.  Thank you to everyone for being a part of our amazing Ear Community Foundation (a 501c3 nonprofit organization) and helping give back to the Microtia and Atresia community.
