This Week - Sunday 4th June 2006

Steve Cammillare

Eddie Redmond meets Steve Cammillare and his family. Steve tells us how losing his hearing at 44 has changed both his and his family's lives. He and his wife, Sarah, talk about the initial struggle to cope with Steve's hearing loss, and their plans for the future - Steve is studying to be an ISL tutor and Sarah hopes to become a sign language interpreter.

Teresa's Column

This week, Teresa meets reflexologist, Mary Regan. Mary tells Teresa about her lifelong dream to work in medicine and her disappointment at being told she could never be a nurse because she is Deaf. She describes her five-year struggle with anorexia and how she overcame her battle with the eating disorder. Mary also talks about her work with the Deaf Blind in St. Joseph's home, working with the IDS and the award she recently received from Deaforward.
