Hearing Aid Fundraising
Hi guys my name is Dazz i'm registered deaf looking for help with raising funds for 2 phonak hearing aids. I'm a young fellow of 26 years of age with a long term partner of 7 years and a beautiful 10 month old baby boy named Dexter.
I have been registered deaf since around the ages of 8-9 and have struggled my whole life to interact and socialise with groups of friends and family on a level of normality that doesnt include asking others to constantly repeat themselves of which has become not only a tiring phrase for myself but for others as well.
I have been given hearing aids on the NHS over the years but have struggled badly with headaches from the moulds as well as whistling and background noises that effectively enabled me to wear them for short periods of time usualy in important environments and with the nhs reluctant to help with anything other than the basics I had to try live the best way I could with what I had.
Recently due to technology breakthroughs I was upgraded to a thin wired aid instead of a mould but because of the severity of the hearing in my right ear it was not possible to use this method due to feedback and constant whistling so had to revert back to the painstaking moulds.
Over the years I have been researching private hearing companies and have been looking into different aids and the technology behind them and after a consultation with a company I have come to the conclusion that I could enjoy a pain free aid that would be invisible on the eye, feedback free but most of all give me the power to enjoy my baby boys sounds, gargles, crys and laughter on the same level as a fully functional human ear without any problems.
I curently work and provide for my son and my partner who is at home as a full time mother and house wife and it is near impossible to save anywhere near enough that would enable me to purchase the aids in the short term and with my sons 1st birthday approaching in June it would be fantastic if I could be close to the target needed by then.
I have put this fundraiser together to help pay for hearing devices of which 2 are needed and any donations would be hugely appreciated. Thankyou.
