March 20, 2015
When you meet 6’5” Lou Ferrigno, aka the Hulk from the 1977-82 television series “The Incredible Hulk,” it doesn’t take long to realize the Santa Monica resident is a gentle giant, using his long lasting stardom to support charities close to his heart.
The 63-year-old, who lost 75 to 80 percent of his hearing in the first few years of his life, has close ties with The Starkey Foundation and L.A. Muscular Dystrophy Association.
In an exclusive interview with Westside Today, Ferrigno said The Starkey Foundation has fitted more than one million hearing aids to people in need around the world – a charity he is proud to support year round.
