“When I joined The Charity League, I thought this was a great way to give back to the community, have fun and meet new people. My view of this organization changed as these women supported me and loved when I gave birth to my first son, Duke, and again later, when I brought Duke to the ENT at Children’s South because his speech was not on track. We walked into The Charity League Speech & Hearing Center and sat in a dark room with lots of sounds and flashing lights, and realized our son couldn’t hear as well as he should. While we had the fortune of being able to correct our son’s hearing with tubes, this experience gave me a glimpse into the fear and vulnerability of a parent being told their child cannot hear.

To be a member of this organization is a privilege. To work with and support these families in their journey is an honor.”
