Shawn Taljaard Hearing Aid

Shawn Taljaard Hearing Aid

Personal message

In 2006, my son, Shawn Taljaard, attracted the Coxsackievirus which left his left ear completely deaf and his right ear with 70% hearing.

Unfortunately, because the nerves had been destroyed, the medical science can do nothing to reverse the damage. We tried several hearing aids over the years while we had a medical aid.

He is currently working in Cape Town area and came across an audiologist who put him on a trial hearing aid, Phonak B30 and Cros.  This really made the world’s difference to him!

Shawn is extremely passionate about music and even with his almost non-existent hearing, he taught himself to play guitar and participate in the church band every week.  Shawn also has a beautiful voice and loves writing his own songs.

Unfortunately I unemployed and my son does not have a medical aid that can help him pay for the hearing device.

The cost of the hearing aids is R26110.00

I would appreciate it if you can help him improve his hearing.

*The campaign creator has opted that Backabuddy transfer any funds raised directly to Shawn's audiologist*

In 2006, my son, Shawn Taljaard, attracted the Coxsackievirus which left his left ear completely deaf and his right ear with 70% hearing.  Unfortunately, because the nerves had been destroyed, the medical science can do nothing to reverse the damage.  Shawn is on a trial hearing aid which has made a massive improvement.  We need help with the cost of the aid.
