Everyone knows someone – a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother or friend – who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, the most common cancer in American women. That’s why, during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Jackson Hearing Center joins with leading hearing care manufacturer Oticon, Inc. to promote the national “Hear in Pink” campaign. Celebrating its tenth year in 2017, the annual campaign combines The Jackson Hearing Center’s commitment to hearing health with support for life-saving breast cancer research.
Throughout September and October, Oticon will donate a portion of the sales of a special edition Pink Oticon Opn™ and all Opn hearing aids to the National Breast Cancer Coalition to fund critical research. In 10 years of “hearing in pink,” Oticon has donated more than $100,000 to non-profit breast cancer organizations.
“The ‘Hear in Pink’ campaign allows us to continue our focus on improving the hearing health of people in West Tennessee and, at the same time, support research to end breast cancer,” said Dr. Kaitlyn Tidwell, Audiologist. “For everyone, ‘Hear in Pink’ is an opportunity to show support for individuals, families and friends who are touched by a disease that represents one of every three cancers diagnosed in women.”
At the heart of this year’s “Hear in Pink” campaign is Oticon Opn. The small, discreet hearing aid offers advantages that even the most sophisticated hearing solutions of today can’t deliver – the ability to manage listening to multiple speakers in noisy environments, like restaurants or social gatherings.
Opn not only opens a world of sound for more people with hearing loss, it brings additional benefits, like the convenience of rechargeable batteries, built-in tinnitus relief sounds and the ability to connect to the Internet. Opn also connects directly to iPhone® and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The optional TV Adapter turns Opn hearing aids into a pair of wireless headphones for TV listening.
