"I was determined not to continue the way I was, and that determination guided me to search for the solution."

-Rudy, 79, Nucleus Kanso Recipient

Rudy gets back to the music thanks to his Kanso

Rudy, a veteran and lifelong music lover, was devastated after losing his hearing while serving in the Marines. Over the years, he found himself making excuses for his hearing loss while also distancing himself from beloved family and friends.

Rudy received encouragement from loved ones to find a solution, and his determination gained from his time in the service helped him to realize he wanted to create a better quality of life for himself. Rudy decided he couldn't lose his passion for music, and that passion drove him to seek out a solution in the form of a Nucleus Kanso. 

Now that Rudy has found a hearing solution, he can get back to what he loves: enjoying his passion for music through his song.
