Dear friends and supporters,
We have a heartfelt message to share with you about our dear colleague and friend, Cheryl. Cheryl has dedicated her entire life to serving the NHS as a nurse and has recently embarked on a new career as a colposcopist. Her unwavering commitment to healthcare and her local community has made a profound impact on so many lives.
Unfortunately, Cheryl is facing a challenging health issue. She has been dealing with a congenital hearing condition that has shown a tendency to deteriorate over time. Last week, she received devastating news about the extent of her hearing loss – 61% in her right ear and 50% in her left ear. This condition has not only affected her personal life but has also had a significant impact on her ability to excel in her profession.
Cheryl has been coping with the limitations of a basic, free hearing aid for many years. However, this aid is no longer sufficient to compensate for her hearing loss. It has also led to recurrent ear infections, which have required endless treatments. Wearing the aid during these infections has been an added struggle.
Furthermore, the basic hearing aid does not effectively cancel out background noise, which can become overwhelming, making it difficult for Cheryl to provide the best care to her patients. It's a challenging situation for someone who has always gone above and beyond to look after others.
Cheryl's kindness and generosity have extended to supporting local communities, charities, and the NHS throughout her life. She is also a loving wife and a devoted mother, always putting her family's needs before her own. Regrettably, she cannot afford the high-quality hearing aid she desperately needs.
The impact of Cheryl's hearing loss goes beyond her personal life. It affects the quality of her work, preventing her from hearing critical sounds in her profession. For instance, she may not hear a patient fainting behind the curtain, which could have serious consequences.
This is where we, Cheryl's friends, colleagues, and well-wishers, come in. Cheryl has supported countless people, and now it's our turn to support her. We want to help her experience the natural sounds of the world once more, without struggle. As they say, "Every little helps!"
We are raising funds to provide Cheryl with a custom rechargeable Specsavers Advance Elite hearing aid, which is rated as a five-star device. However, if we don't manage to collect enough funds, Cheryl will go for a simpler, yet still superior, hearing aid option.
Please join us in making a difference in Cheryl's life. Your support will not only enhance her ability to care for patients but also ensure her personal safety. Let's rally together and show our gratitude for all that Cheryl has done for us. Your contribution, no matter how small, will be a meaningful step toward improving Cheryl's quality of life.
Thank you for your generosity and kindness.
