Disability In Need

Lucy received a cochlear implant a couple of years ago but sadly that implant has failed and she will shortly undergo surgery to have it replaced. She has also experienced a few periods of complete hearing loss in her non-implanted ear. We are trying to raise funds for a second implant to give Lucy the best hearing she can get.

My daughter Lucy is 6 years old and was born deaf and we are raising money to help fund a second cochlear implant. Her hearing loss has deteriorated over her short life which has left her short of language and some listening ability, but fortunately not short on personality. Lucy received a cochlear implant a couple of years ago but sadly that implant has failed and she will shortly undergo surgery to have it replaced. She has also experienced a few periods of complete hearing loss in her non-implanted ear. We are trying to raise funds for a second implant in her other ear to give Lucy the best hearing experience she can get - this goal will cost approximately $30,000. We are looking to cash in our Kiwisaver, and maybe put some of the cost on the mortgage, but we would very much welcome any contribution you can make to assist Lucy to get a second cochlear implant. You can find out more about bilateral cochlear implants at http://2ears2hear.kiwi.nz/.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Peter McKenzie-Bridle.
