Stricken with deafness after an illness contracted at the age of 7, Jack Shapiro not only triumphed over the condition in his own working life, but also devoted himself to finding ways of ameliorating the predicament of those similarly afflicted.
We have all, at one time or other, been in awe of the wisdom and vitality of someone older than us. Salcombea€™s first development of new properties right on the watera€™s edge for almost twenty years.
The state-of-the-art German-technology Haux pressure chambers which we are employing for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, are available for patients ranging from 1 day old newborn babies to conscious and unconscious patients, producing successful outcomes. The singer and the rapper have both talked openly about their struggles with tinnitus in the past, and now they are both backing a new project to help other sufferers. The two stars' bands, Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas, have both contributed songs to the I Am The One In Ten album in aid of the British Tinnitus Association.
The record features songs from bands and artists who have all been affected by tinnitus in some way, and British radio host Eddy Temple-Morris, who has been among those driving the project, insists Martin's involvement has really given the campaign a boost.
Another tinnitus sufferer, Embrace frontman Danny McNamara, has also allowed one of the band's songs to be used on the album, while other contributors include Enter Shikari, Chicane and Adam F.


NTDF is hosting a Tinnitus Awareness Afternoon tomorrow, February 6th from 12noon – 3pm.
David is the resident IT expert and is responsible for overseeing and managing the network, computers and website. From the mid-1950s he had been closely involved in the work of the Royal National Institute for Deaf People and in the 1970s he founded the British Tinnitus Association.Jack Shapiro was born in Stepney in the East End of London in 1916, the son of immigrant Jewish parents.

An illness rendered him almost completely deaf at 7, and all his life thereafter he wore hearing aids.
Although there was no special provision for the hard of hearing in those days, his condition did not stop him from continuing his education, and after leaving school at 17 he attended the Regent Street Polytechnic.After leaving the polytechnic he worked for charity organisations until 1957 when he suffered a stroke and was for a time gravely ill. But he made a remarkable recovery, and embarked on a career as an insurance salesman, first with Co-operative Insurance and subsequently with Confederation Life.


Although he took the insurance companiesa€™ commissions, he devoted a good deal of his own time and efforts to trying to obtain mortgages for those who in normal circumstances would have found this difficult.He had by this time become interested not merely in coping with his own deafness but in seeking ways to benefit those similarly afflicted. This was the first treatment which tackled tinnitus with any hope of alleviating the condition.Shapiro was also influential in the formation of the RNID Deaf Assembly, which brought together all the organisations in the UK which cater for the deaf. Successful seminars were held throughout the country dealing with such matters as the cost of deafness, hearing aids and cochlear implants. In 1996 Shapiro was awarded the RNIDa€™s Medal of Honour in recognition of his efforts.After a 1979 television broadcast on tinnitus by the Labour MP Jack Ashley (now Lord Ashley of Stoke), himself a sufferer and with whom Shapiro had worked, public interest in the condition was enormously increased.
Shapiro, already chairman of the NW London Tinnitus Self-help Group, now founded the British Tinnitus Association through which he campaigned tirelessly to raise funds to finance the search for a pharmaceutical cure for tinnitus. In 2005 this led to the appointment of a Fellow in Tinnitus Studies at the University College London Ear Institute.Shapiro published many articles in journals for ear, nose and throat specialists, and for those with tinnitus, and was active in visiting self-help groups throughout the UK.
