Five-year-old Hailey Tran was born with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, a type of hearing loss caused by damage to the inner ear or sensory organ – the cochlea and associated structures – or the vestibulocochlear nerve. It is generally permanent and can be mild, moderate, severe, profound or total. She recently received a loaner hearing aid from the Pennsylvania Ear Institute (PEI).
