One week before Nathan's birthday last August 2018, we realized that he was not responding to any sound, and noticed that his speech was delayed. We had him checked by 2 ENTs in two consecutive days. We also consulted his Pedia hoping that it was just because of his cough and colds but we got 3 referrals for hearing tests ☹ We were preparing ourself to look forward that maybe he might just need a hearing aid to catch up to a normal life. But when we got the result of Nathan's hearing test, this confirmed our fears. His hearing test result was not just mild but it was extensive and severe. 😭😭 Our heart was broken. We had him checked again for a 2nd opinion, 3rd, 4th and so on. We are saddened that my son can't hear the world. He wants to speak but he can't. Nathan is such a sweet little boy with a sweet smile that will light up your day! When you're a parent, you always want the best for your child. No matter how hard, no matter how painful, we will always have to stand up. I have 2 sons who depend on us.
He have to undergo Cochlear Implant surgery . This surgery and device cost 1M-1.5M per ear. Were asking for your help. To all Moms, Dads, and to everyone out there, I'm knocking on your hearts to please help us. Let Nathan hear us. Please give us hope. Nathan's journey is just starting... Godbless you all!
