“I feel safe.”

I heard about Australian Lions Hearing Dogs not long after my husband passed away 2 years ago. My hearing had been diminishing for years and I was increasingly feeling left out.

I taught myself to lip read, but it is very tiring. Hearing aids helped but they don’t provide the whole solution and certainly not at night when I take them off.

After my husband died, I became very anxious. Even only 6 weeks into Bo’s and my beautiful relationship, I’ve lost all anxiety and people tell me I haven’t stopped smiling……..I feel safe.
