Help me purchase hearing aids

It's very hard for me to ask for help, however, I have exhausted all options and this is a very serious matter.

My parents found out at an early age that I was completely deaf out of my left ear. So all my life I've only been able to hear fro my right. It was tough, but I've coped. On Monday March 17, 2014 I saw a Hearing Specialist because I felt as though the hearing in my right ear wasn't what it used to be. Unfortunately, I was correct. The hearing in my right ear decreased by 35% since my last hearing test in 2007. This is not normal is very concerning, especially for someone my age. My total hearing is now only at 32%. The Hearing Specialist is very adamant that I get hearing aids to help stimulate my nerve endings so that they do not die and cause irreversible damage and so that I can hear like a "normal" person. The hearing aids are beyond what I can afford, costing $5,490.00 and my insurance does not cover any part of them. I have exhausted all options trying to purchase them on my own so I'm reaching out to the online community. I do plan on getting a 2nd job to save money for them, so I will be donating to this page as well. But I'm afraid that if I wait too long I will lose more of my hearing and some of that might be permanent even with an aid to help. So I'm asking for any type of donation, even if you simply share this link I will be eternally grateful. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. This is a tough situation; I'm not even 25 and I'm facing the chance of being completely deaf in the near future. Needless to say I'm pretty scared and stressed out. Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you again.
