We need more research – Tanya’s story

Jul 1, 2016

20160325_162014I have Meniere’s disease and tinnitus in both ears. I have hearing loss in both ears and I wear a hearing aid in one ear. I am not eligible for any government assisstance for my hearing aids, test, ENT appointments or  medication to manage my condition.

I am no longer able to work.  I suffer anxiety from my Meniere’s. I cannot apply for government assistance because of my husband’s wages. My social life, self worth and all aspects of my life are affected.

Research into hearing and related conditions would be wonderful.
