Help Taelynn get “Hears”

Help Taelynn get “Hears”

Personal message

My daughter, Taelynn, was born on 11 March 2019, with a rare condition known as Bilateral Microtia and Atresia, where her inner and outer ears have not developed properly.

I’m fundraising in order to help Taelynn get “Hears”, my Medical Aid won’t pay for Taelynn’s device(s) and/or operations because of the plan that I am on (they do not cover any Hearing Aids.) I want Taelynn to grow up living a normal life, being able to do and learn everything that every other child can, without feeling different from everyone else.

I need to buy Taelynn’s Hearing Aids as soon as possible. Taelynn will undergo her first operation by 2021 to insert “Cochlear Implants” and then she will undergo another surgery which will be Reconstructive Ear Surgery, where they take cartilage from her rib cage to design ears for her.

• BAHA Hearing Device(s) - R138 000 (R69 000 per ear) • Cochlear Implants - R270 000 (R135 000 per ear) > Total - R408 000 (The Reconstructive Ear Surgery, we can raise money closer to the time that she will be getting it done.)

This will impact Taelynn’s life immensely, as she will be able to hear, speak and learn no differently to any other child. I would love Taelynn to lead as much of a normal life as possible, knowing she is very unique and will not be bullied in anyway whatsoever.
