Lori Frisher, a woman who has lived with moderate to severe hearing impairment, shared her thoughts on living with invisible disability as a Special Guest at the 2011 Invisible Disabilities Association Honor Awards Banquet.
Lori said, “Imagine the invisible disability: Not hearing the sounds of a kiss or child’s voice, let alone your own voice.”
Lori has been an Honor Student, two time cancer survivor and she was recently an Emmy Nominee for her documentary as the first recipient of the Esteem Implant, along with the Cochlear Implant she already had.
Since receiving the Esteem Implant, Lori added, “All the day to day experiences we take for granted, I began hearing for the first time, which has become life-changing for me.”
