Steven and Rachael live in a close-knit community with their daughter Erin, who was born Deaf. Erin uses Auslan (Australian Sign Language) to communicate, and as a child, she would happily stop you in the street for a chat or an Auslan lesson. Sadly, when Erin began high school, she was bullied and ignored by her peers.
As parents, Steven and Rachael were heartbroken, and were desperate for help. Thankfully, they found Hear For You, a mentoring program for Deaf and hard of hearing kids. With their help, Erin made new friends, built a strong support group, and was reminded that being Deaf should never hold her back.
Your ticket purchases ensure teenagers like Erin can access vital programs like Hear For You.
