Hearing Aids for Violet

Violet graduates from Greenville high School on June 1, 2013, and she is headed off to West Virginia University in the Fall. What she needs more than anything else in order to be successful are new hearing aids.
Violet has had severe hearing loss since birth, and has had hearing aids since age 3. Unfortunately, hearing aids cost thousands of dollars, and, although they're a medical necessity, health insurance plans will not cover them.
Throughout her life, we have struggled to cover the cost of Violet's hearing aids, but right now we are unable to find any other way to fund them.
We are desperate to send Violet off to her new life in college with good, working hearing aids. The pair she has now are literally falling apart, and one gives off constant feed back in one ear (a high pitched squeal she hears all day). She struggles to hear with them in, and is constantly readjusting and trying to keep them in her ears.
Anything you would be willing to give would be so very much appreciated.

thank you!
