Hi, my name is Jessica and I am mom of a 4 years old boy called Dylan. Dylan was born with microtia in his right ear.Microtia is an abnormally small external ear (auricle). It occurs in one out of every 8,000 to 10,000 births, either as an isolated condition or in association with other findings. Microtia treatment may include plastic surgery for reconstruction of the ear and exams to evaluate the hearing loss. Dylan didn't do any exam or evaluation because I didn't get the money to do so. Please I beg you help my son to do all the exams he needs and his plastic surgery to reconstruct his right ear. Although Dylan is handsome the way He is, we want to help him avoid the obstacles he is currently facing and will face, as well as the inevitable unkind nature of some kids and adults. We hope to raise money to help with the medical and travel expenses to California for him to have an evaluation for Medpor or ribs surgery on his right ear so he will have "normal" looking ear. Things most of us take for granted like wearing glasses, Dylan cannot do. So as early as 7 years old, Dylan can have reconstructive surgery to his ear. The Medpor surgery is only performed by a select amount of surgeons and the best are in CA. He will need 2-3 surgeries and each requires a 2 week stay. Eventually when he is around 6 or 7 we will see if he is a candidate for the surgery .Any donation you are able to make would be greatly appreciated and never forgotten.
