Hearing again!

By Laurie Moyson

Falicia was a new athlete competing at State Summer Games in track and field. She has significant hearing lost and broken hearing aids. Previously, she watched for hand signals to start her races and would never hear anyone cheering her on. But that all changed at State Summer Games. Falicia ended up receiving a silver medal in the 50 meter dash and gold in the softball throw, but her top prize for the weekend was Healthy Hearing fixing her hearing aids! She shouted, "I can hear, I can hear!” The victory dance that follows the closing ceremony, was an enjoyable loud experience for her. She never stopped smiling.
