Meet Joan Stundon, one of our #Giveback recipients! At 62 years of age, Joan has experienced more suffering than most.

She lost her sense of smell and hearing following a brain bleed, necessitating a 7-day stay in a hospital ICU. She’s battled cancer twice and won, and chronic osteoporosis affects her bone strength and stability. Despite these challenges, Joan cares for her husband (who has a disability), her brother (who is wheelchair-bound), and her 5 year old grandchild. Faced with hardship, many of us turn to alcohol, tobacco, chocolate and other vices for consolation – but not Joan.

She’s made significant lifestyle changes for improved health to ensure she can continue to care for her family. She’s quit her 40-a-day smoking habit and lost an incredible 5 stone. Joan misses the everyday sounds that we take for granted and can’t afford to buy hearing aids. When her son Jeffrey told us about his mum and asked for our help, we felt compelled to oblige. It’s a pleasure to give the #GiftOfHearing to this remarkable lady, who spends her life caring for others.

Deirdre Whelan nominated her father, Liam, for the #GiftOfHearing. Liam, who is 88, has overcome some serious health issues, including a stroke and triple by-pass, and he’s had a pacemaker installed. Despite health challenges, Liam is the sole carer of his wife, Margaret. He cooks, cleans, shops and washes, and cooks three meals a day for his beloved wife. His children make daily zoom calls to check in on their parents; however, Liam's struggling to hear their voices.

He’s also having trouble hearing the TV and Radio and the voice of Luke O’Neil, who Deirdre describes as “his new best friend.” To compound matters, Liam has macular degeneration, which threatens his vision, and requires frequent eye injections.  As his vision is deteriorating, his ability to hear is more important than ever. This brave and resilient man is genuinely deserving of our help and the #GiftOfHearing.

Liam is now wearing new state-of-the-art hearing aids, and we hope that they will help him to connect with his family, hear his favourite TV programmes and listen to the voice of his new best friend.
