Hi! I'm Dianne, an 18-year-old girl from the Philippines. I have been hard of hearing since I was 12, but we have just only confirmed that my right ear is dead last December 2020. My audiometrist prescripted me a hearing aid. At that moment, it was all too much for me to take in. I inherited this deafness from my mother, and neither of us has had proper treatment.
In line with this, I'd love to knock on kind hearts for even a little donation. I have done some side-hustles in school and I'm even trying out investing in crypto, but my doctor and audiometrist said that we need to get me a hearing aid as soon as possible, because I am at risk of full deafness if not.
Below, you would see the hearing aid quotation that my audiometrist gave me. Since I have a unilateral hearing (I can hear in my left ear and not in my right), the recommended hearing aid for me is a Contralateral Routing of Signals or CROS hearing-aid. It has two pieces and one won't work without the other, and you will see in the quotation that it is VERY EXPENSIVE. Not to mention that the quotation is only valid for a month so the price might've increased by now.
My parents' situations now in the pandemic aren't very helpful as my mom's salary decreased and my dad lost his. I can assure all of you that I am studying very well and that none of your donations will go to waste (that is, if someone would donate). As for the 150K request, it's that high because we don't know the exact price of the hearing aid now and there's a 4% site fee her (lowest I could find). Also, the value of a dollar in the Philippines is already very much, just to gives you guys a reference.
I thank you all in advance for your help! :)
