Elijah Moncivais' BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) Fund
Organized by: Brittani Smith
Update and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little nemo!
June 20, 2016
As of 6/28/16, we received the news that our local Sertoma Club of Laurel MS has donated the rest of the money for Eli's hearing aid!! PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW!!!! However, I'm not going to stop this campaign- From 6/28/16 until the end of this fundraiser, all funds raised will be donated BACK to the Sertoma Club of Laurel Ms so that another family can have their prayers answered as we have!!!
As much as I hate putting any kind of personal business out there... I do need guidance. Most of you know, many of you don't... So, this is a long story but here is the synopsis. Eli was born with a condition called unilateral microtia. He has been blessed as have we because typically with this comes more serious health issues. He was born with only 1 ear, but has excelled in learning despite any form of what you may call 'disability'... we look at it as opportunity to just learn differently. However, he keeps fluid on his good ear so the hearing out of that one is not great. He starts kindergarten this year, and since surgery is just not an option at this time, there is something that will actually allow him to hear in the ear that was not formed. It is called a Baha hearing aid (bone anchored hearing aid). I don't want to do a go fund me, and we will work hard to gather the money ourselves, but if you know of any great ideas for a fund raiser... please share this status and let me know. The amount we need is 4590.00 (I know it's not a massive amount, but it's more than what we can pull out of thin air). We need to have as much as we can by July 15, 2016! Anyone who knows my Eli knows how special he is and he brings joy to every heart he comes in to contact with. Thank you for your prayers, shares, and donations in advance!!!
