DMG Gives Back!

We are thrilled to continue our “DMG Gives Back” program in 2014. This year, a portion of conference proceeds will be donated to Listen Up!, a foundation dedicated to helping children with hearing impairments, created in honor of my 7th grade son Caleb. Caleb, is completely deaf in both ears, but through the miracle of cochlear implants now leads a full and extremely productive life. He plays sports, is a CPR certified Boy Scout, and neighborhood pet sitter, has a great sense of humor, and his friends and teachers often say they forget he is deaf. In fact, listening to him play the piano has brought many to tears of joy. He is our superstar and hero, and it is our wish that others will be inspired by Caleb too! 12 www.dmgcme.com
