Organized by: Norm Paxton

THE STORY:

Chance, 14, was diagnosed as profoundly deaf at almost 3 years old. He was able to get cochlear implants at about 6 years old.  Due to the late diagnosis, he spent much of his elementary school years two to three years behind his age-appropriate language. Due to much hard work and effort on his part - and his mother and wonderful teachers - he caught up to age-appropriate levels.

He has never let his deafness define him or hold him back - he swims competitively, and plays on his high school's varsity soccer team.  He has taught swim lessons and ref'd soccer.  He has always been willing to help educate others about deafness, cochlear implants, etc.

This year he has been studying Mandarin in school - and loving it.
He has been selected as one of twenty students nationwide to attend an intense three-week Chinese Immersion program at University of Hawaii at Manoa.

You can read more of his story at http://www.achancetohear.com

Help us raise funds for airfare and housing so that he can attend this program.
