We knew since Paolo was a child that he had mild hearing loss in his left ear, but we were shocked when we learned how bad it was and that it affected both of his ears. Apparently, Paolo learned to adapt and thought the hearing loss he experienced was “normal”.
A few weeks ago, Paolo was fitted with “demo” hearing aids. He was so excited to hear what he’d been missing. After making modifications to his demos, his doctor recently fitted him with permanent hearing aids and Paolo could not be happier!
Medical insurance will not cover hearing aids. Paolo’s Case Worker applied to six agencies that she knew gave funding for them, but was unsuccessful in obtaining funding as most were out of funds for the year.
Since Paolo is on a limited, fixed income, we are asking for help to get hearing aids for him. If you would like to help, we have set up a Go Fund Me account for this specific purpose. We know that money can be tight, so please know that even the smallest contribution helps us get closer to our goal! Any contribution will be greatly appreciated. Donating and/or Sharing this GoFundMe with your Social Network would mean so much to both Paolo & I.
