Check Your Hearing for National Cancer Survivors Day
What should cancer survivors know about hearing loss?
The first Sunday in June marks National Cancer Survivors Day®, a day for great celebration, inspiration, and support for the many people who have survived cancer, along with their families, friends, and communities.
It is also a day to promote awareness of the ongoing challenges that cancer survivors face, as well as a time to provide resources so they can continue to enjoy fulfilling lives.
If you have experienced cancer and cancer treatment, the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) encourages you to take our free, confidential, online hearing check to help determine if you need a comprehensive hearing test by a hearing healthcare professional.
Certain chemotherapy medications and radiation therapy treatments for certain cancers may damage healthy cochlear hair cells found in the inner ear and result in hearing loss.
Fortunately, the vast majority of people with hearing loss can benefit from hearing aids. And research shows that people with hearing loss who use hearing aids enjoy a better overall quality of life and are more likely to be optimistic and feel engaged in life.
So please, take the BHI Hearing Check today.
