Hello, my name is Mohcine, i am 38 years old, I was born and raised in Tangier City, Morocco, married to a wonderful wife and father of 2 beautiful children.
I suffer from bilateral hearing loss (both ears are affected), so the hearing loss in my right ear is -40%, and in my left ear is almost -90%.
It all begun in February 2011, when i started to suffer from vertigo and tinnitus for the first time, I visited an otolaryngologist, and he told me it was a problem in my inner ear that was causing loss of balance and dizziness, so i followed a treatment given by the doctor and after one month i was fine.
8 months later i started to have vertigo and tinnitus again, but this time they were accompanied with a complete hearing loss in my left ear, i went to the same doctor and followed a treatment, and in one month i was fine, but my hearing didn´t recover well.
These same episodes started to happen to me every 7 or 8 months but they vary in intensity each time.
Until one morning in January, 2017, I woke up completely deaf; i visited several doctors, i toke a lot of medicines and made a lot of tests: Audiometry evaluations, RMI scanner, blood tests and the results showed no anomaly whatsoever.
My day to day life became so difficult and challenging, you will never know the real value of something until you lose it, in my case, the ability to hear.
I lost my job, and all my savings, but I didn´t lose hope, It was so difficult to find a new job while having hearing difficulties, my job searching was very stressful and unnerving, but luckily I found a new job.
In my current job as a sales person, I use the help of lips reading, to compensate my hearing loss, to understand/guess what the other person is trying to tell me, but if we are in a noisy environment it´s quite challenging, it´s a very stressful and demoralizing situation that I live day by day as my job relies on face to face communication.
And now the situation in my right ear is starting to get worse and I risk losing my job again.
All the doctors I’ve visited urged me to use Hearing aids in both ears as the only solution due to the severity of my hearing loss, but those hearing aids are very expensive, and I can´t afford them.
That´s why I decided to ask for your support and generosity to help me get these hearing aids, my little family and I will be forever grateful for your support, you will really change our lives.
Thank you very much,
