Expectant parents hope and pray that their child will be born perfectly healthy. And that was the case for the Eckstein family. However, when their son, Leo was born with hearing loss they say the initial diagnosis took them completely by surprise.
Thanks to funding from the WHAS Crusade for Children, Heuser Hearing Institute has been able to provide equipment and therapies to give youngsters like Leo every chance to fulfill their potential. Since 1979, Heuser has received Crusade grants totaling more than $1 million, which have helped thousands of children with hearing issues.
