Please show support for my daughter Zye to raise funds for her cochlear implantation, so she could hear the world.
Zyrene was born with a bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss. They’ve detected that she was deaf when she was 2 years old. Right now, she wore hearing aids on both ears but according to the hearing results still she cannot speak any word or even hear sounds. The doctor and audiologist recommended her for a cochlear implant.
Med-El will be the provider for Zyrene’s implant and they explained to them the effectiveness of having a cochlear implant for their daughter. Although the parents are both working to support their child’s need (most especially speech therapy), still they cannot afford the cost of the surgery and the implant that will put on their daughter’s ear. No insurance covers this kind of procedure here in our country. We’re asking for your help to raise funds for this beautiful little kid, I know that she can do more if she’ll be implanted as soon as possible.
All the money we raise will be used to pay for Zyrene's implant procedure and medical expenses. Our goal is to raise at least $60,000 to have her both ears implanted. Zyrene needs all your support and prayers to help her stay strong through this trial. Your support means a lot to us and it will make her hearing become a reality.
Please help us spread the word about this campaign; we need all the support we can get! Share this page with everyone you know. Thank you for your generosity!
