HURRICANE — Motivational speaker and author Justin Osmond will be guest speaker at the Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at 63 S. 100 W. in Hurricane.

Born with a severe hearing loss that was diagnosed when he was 2 years old, Osmond can now speak with passion after 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy and modern-day technology.

Despite his hearing loss, Osmond proved the medical experts wrong who said he would never play a musical instrument. He went on to play the violin, viola, piano and drums. He also excelled in soccer, football, basketball and track. He also earned his Eagle Scout rank and a Master’s degree in business administration.

At the Thursday luncheon, Osmond will address what it is like to live in a world without sound. In his recently published book “Hearing with my Heart,” he shares his story in order to help everyone understand the struggles of living with a hearing loss and how to overcome it.

According to a press release from the Hurricane chamber, Osmond said he lives every day by his personal motto: “I may have a hearing loss, but that hearing loss does not have me.”

The deadline to register for the meeting is Tuesday. For more information, visit the chamber’s website. The cost is $10.
