A hearing care practitioner is
marking breast cancer awareness month in October by offering a pink hearing
device to help raise funds for research.
Dr. Annette Stephenson of Cayman
Hearing Centre in George Town said that by offering the hearing aid, she is
supporting a worthy cause while at the same time making a difference for people
with hearing loss.
Dr. Stephenson is offering the new
Oticon Agil ‘Think Pink,’ a small, sleek, distinctively pink hearing device.
Pink is traditionally the colour associated with breast cancer awareness.
During National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month in October, Dr. Stephenson will participate in the national
Pink with a Purpose campaign to help raise money for breast cancer research.
Throughout the month, hearing care
manufacturer Oticon will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of Agil
Think Pink and all other Agil hearing devices to the National Breast Cancer
“Agil takes much of the hard work
out of organising, selecting and following sounds so that people with hearing
loss can stay engaged and active in everyday activities,” she said. It also has
a companion device that connects wirelessly to televisions, cell and landline
phones and other communication devices.
Think Pink can accommodate
approximately 80 per cent of hearing losses, she said.
