Help Landie hear again

Help Landie hear again

Personal message

My name is Jolandie and today I’ve been sunk into a world of silence, once again. 

After beating cancer, doctors told me I would never be able to have children, and yet through some miracle I was blessed with two. Unfortunately, during pregnancy I lost 50% of my hearing in both ears due to Otosclerosis.  This was challenging at home and work, something you cannot get used to, leading to isolation. 

Medical aid would pay for a cochlear implant but the doctors said that the surgery would not improve my hearing.  Hearing aids were the only solution, one I could not afford.      

In 2012, a colleague helped by donating hearing aids from an uncle who had passed.  They were almost brand new and I had them adjusted to my specific hearing loss needs.  This opened my world again and they lasted many years.  

This morning (21 January 2019) both amplifiers blew on them and they are irreparable.  The last quote I received in Jan 2018 was R59 780 for both ears. I’m reaching out to the community to help me so that I can at least get one, ideally both. 

Prices vary because hearing aids are tailored to your situation and environment. An elderly person that needs to just hear the phone and TV, would not need as an advanced hearing aid as an office worker in a noisy open plan office participating in meetings. 

At this point any help with funding would be much appreciated, no matter how small.

*Backabuddy will hold the funds until closer to the target*
