Neave Barrett's Journey to Sound

On 23rd September our beautiful little girl, Neave Fern Barrett was born. Just 2 days later Neave had her hearing screening. She didn't pass. We didn't think much of this at the time, but the weeks that followed were very difficult, as we went from test to test and slowly it dawned on us that Neave may have a hearing loss. Exactly a month after she was born we received the diagnosis that she is profoundly deaf. We were devastated. Thankfully, we have since found hope through cochlear implants.

The cost of the cochlear implant system is £21,097. Fortunately we have a medical aid which pays a portion of this, but the shortfall is still significant. Because Neave's first operation had to be performed urgently we have had to find funds to pay for the 1st ear immediately. Our hope is that we can raise the funds for Neave's 2nd ear. All funds raised here will specifically pay for Neave's implant & sound processor for her left ear. Any surplus funds will go to other CI candidates in need.
