The whole team is happy to announce that the winner of its seasonal competition, “Hear for the Holidays,” is Wayde Carroll!

Back in November, we asked locals to nominate someone in need of hearing support. Our team then voted for the person who they felt most deserved the gift of hearing.

They based their decisions on the touching stories that friends and loved ones shared about nominees with Alaska Hearing & Tinnitus Center. And this year, unanimously, they picked Wayde Carroll as their winner.

Our winner, Wayde Carroll

Many people have had a tough year, but Wayde has dealt with more than most. He was a caregiver to his wife for many years, and sadly, she recently lost her battle with cancer.

Unfortunately, his business also collapsed due to the pandemic and the support that he needed to provide to his wife during this period.

He was in great need of hearing assistance, and everyone at the clinic was so pleased to provide him with a pair of state-of-the-art hearing aids as he begins to rebuild his life.

Giving back to our community is part of our mission at the clinic, and it’s our honor to be able to provide someone in need with the gift of hearing.

Are you concerned about a hearing loss or know someone who is? Contact our friendly office team, and they’ll help you find a fantastic, cost-effective solution!
