Thank you for clicking the link.
I am Danica Joy Navidad, a self-supporting student here in Quezon City, Philippines. I am originally from Zamboanga City.
I made this fund raising to help my father get funds for his hearing aid. He is a retired Marines, being in the service since 17 years old and serving for 32 years. His hearing was damaged due to a nerve that was damaged when he was still in the service (loud noises, gun shots, bomb explosions, etc.)
He is already depressed because he feels like he is already dead even when he is still living because he cannot hear us. He is a very loving and responsible father but sadly, we cannot afford his hearing aid.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
My goal is to give the hearing aid to him as a gift on New Year's Eve.
I accompanied my father to the Veterans Memorial Medical Center for a free hearing test. He was diagnosed with a severe hearing loss on his left ear, and profound hearing loss on his right ear. His level of understanding of words is also only 32% due to not being able to hear for quite a long time. He is now unfamiliar of some sounds that is why he needs to have this hearing aid to avoid lowering that percentage more.
Thank you very much!
