Tamika Catchings Fund Provides Free Hearing Aids and Repairs


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – Lady Vol Basketball Hall of Famer and four-time Olympic gold medalist Tamika Catchings is continuing to make a difference in East Tennessee.

Catchings has an Amplification Fund at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s Audiology Department, which supports young adults whose insurance no longer covers the cost of hearing amplifiers.

26-year-old Sierra Morris, from Walland, received a new set of hearing aids from the fund.

Morris’ mother Tina Christopher said Sierra has a bilateral hearing loss and she’s been going to UT Hearing and Speech Center to get hearing aids since she was three.
