Katie opened up about bringing awareness to the deaf community with her hit ABC Family show, Switched at Birth.
“Meniere’s disease [which Katie has] is such a tricky thing. There are four main symptoms: pressure in the ear, ringing in the ear, fluctuating hearing loss and attacks of vertigo. The vertigo is the hardest to handle for me. I’ll be out at a basketball game and suddenly the ground will start spinning and everything moves in slow motion…you just have to stand there and wait for it to pass,” she shared.
She added, “It has been so great to be able to help raise awareness for this disease and about the deaf culture in general. Television has the ability to let their voice be heard and it’s nice when that power is used for good.”
