The foundation, a non-profit organization, works to further hearing loss awareness by honoring those who have overcome hearing loss to achieve their goals and inspire others to do the same. These individuals are known as HearStrong Champions.

Blaise first experienced hearing loss as a child, possibly the result of several tumors in his ears when he was born. Though he didn’t utilize hearing devices until he began his professional football career in 1984, Blaise developed an extremely positive attitude and had the determination to overcome his challenges and succeed.

After being named MVP of the Syracuse University football team in 1983, Blaise achieved his dream of playing professionally. During his 11-year career, Blaise played with the Indianapolis Colts, the San Diego Chargers and the Green Bay Packers.

“I have never been held up from any (hearing) loss and will not be,” said Blaise. “I have been able to do all the things I dream.”121413_hearstrong_packers_AD
