Sydney's Hearing Aids
Organized by: Heath-Nicki Lewis
We are raising money for our 10 year old daughter Sydney. Sydney was born premature weighing 2 pounds 14 ounces and was in the NICU and received antibiotics that may have contributed to the hearing loss. Sydney has been diagnosed with sensorineural hearing loss(damage to the inner ear structure (cochlea) and the nerve pathway to the brain. The only treatment available is hearing aids. This hearing loss is permanent and cannot be corrected. Unfortunately our insurance does not cover hearing aids or the assistive devices that will help her in school. This is a lifelong struggle for Sydney with lifelong mounting medical bills. Sydney is a very sweet, loving and generous child and any help received will be greatly appreciated.
