Meet Nolan: Summer Camp Participant

Meet Nolan: Summer Camp Participant

Last summer, for the first time, seven year-old Nolan, from Calvert, Newfoundland and Labrador, had the opportunity to experience the Annual Canadian Hard of Hearing Association – Newfoundland and Labrador (CHHA-NL) Provincial Summer Camp for families of children with hearing loss.  Nolan is vibrant with a charming personality and wears two hearing aids.

“The main thing he got out of it (camp) was a sense of belonging.” – Sandra, Nolan’s mom

Nolan’s camp experience was shared with his sister Mackenzie and mom Sandra who had the unique opportunity to spend time with other families of children with hearing loss; a chance for all to experience, share and connect.

“For me, finding out what other people (parents) are struggling with – it makes you feel like you’re normal.” – Sandra 

Nolan was born with a rare form of cancer, his hearing loss is a result of his chemotherapy treatments.
