Microtia Awareness Day is a day to raise awareness for the condition microtia, which affects approximately 1 in every 10,000 births. Microtia is a congenital deformity of the outer ear that can cause hearing loss.
People with microtia often require surgery to reconstruct their outer ear, and they may also need to use hearing aids or cochlear implants to improve their hearing.
Microtia Awareness Day is a day to raise awareness for this condition and to provide support for those who are affected by it.
If you know someone with microtia, take a moment to reach out and let them know you are there for them. Together, we can make a difference for those living with this condition.
