Help Laksh Get The Gift Of Hearing

Can you imagine that this happy little child is oblivion to what has happened to him, Oblivion to the fact that God has kept him deprived from the gift of hearing. without it, his future is in darkness.

 We learned about his condition when even after being 2 years of age, he did not call me "Mumma". The word all moms in the world wait to hear. We were devastated, our happy little world had just crumbled, our smiles wiped off. It took us weeks to accept what had happened and to start looking for a solution.

We fell for the common understanding that prevails, " Boys talk late". Being from a family of hearing people, who had no exposure what so ever to hearing loss, we had no idea about early intervention which helps the child to learn and develop speech at the right age. Thankfully, technology today has a solution for this issue and Unfortunately, it is very expensive for commoners like us. The solution is Cochlear implants. This is the only way my Child with Bilateral Profound hearing loss", meaning with almost no hearing in both ears, can hear. The entire procedure of implantation and the device for both ears costs from 25 to 30 Lakh Indian Rupees. To make things worse, in India insurance does not cover this cost.

Hence, we opted to look for help from people who would understand our situation. For every parent, their child is their world. Seeking help from such parents to brighten up my child's world. So that he can hear the lullabies he never heard.

Any amount of help from you would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way in my child's future. 

His surgery is scheduled on the 26th (October) at Medikeri's Superspeciality ENT Center Bangalore

Surgeon: Dr. Shankar B Medikeri
