We wouldn't be where we are if it wasn't for the Lions' contributions to the University of Minnesota, ENT Lions Center.
Our family came to Elk River from Up-North, (North of Bemidji) for the auditory-oral education and medicine for our born profoundly deaf daughter. It has been eight years since she was implanted with a Cochlear Implant, and a total of sixteen surgeries. She is a very rambunctious tween now, who surprises people when they find she is profoundly deaf, because of how well-spoken she is. Her confidence, and our deep appreciation for Lions community support have led our family to becoming a Lions Club family. Our semi-monthly meetings include our two daughters, my husband and myself and a room full of civic-minded individuals who work hard to build up our community. It feels great to give back!
