cycle of abuse. Barbara Sinatra is quick to thank supporters of the "Frank Sinatra Starkey Hearing Technologies Celebrity Invitational,
and she is proud to say "The children who come to us for help continue
to receive the therapy they need and deserve; no child is turned away due
to a family's inability to pay."
