SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Invaluable iPod replaced

In the Nov. 10 issue of The Daily Iowan, a patient from our clinic wrote a letter describing her misfortune of leaving two iPods in a women's restroom at Kinnick Stadium. As this child described in her letter, her iPod serves a much bigger purpose in her life than what is traditional to most people. She is profoundly deaf and has two cochlear implants. Through her iPod, Madeline is able to connect to the social world around her.

Fortunately for this child, Doug Moore, a resident of Iowa City, read this article and wanted to make right what happened at Kinnick Stadium. Moore contacted the Department of Otolaryngology and has offered to replace Madeline's iPod and ear hooks.

We want to thank him for caring and showing this teenage girl how kind people in this world can be.
