Help Me To Hear Again

Imagine losing your ability to do what you do for a living? For me, as a passionate dancer and a workaholic choreographer, I can't hear due to malfunction of my cochlear implant that help me to hear very well. Sweat gets into my cochlear device and it goes through troubleshooting like how a non-waterproof watch would stop working if it gets wet. Without it, I'm complete deaf. Without my hearing ability, I can't work. Not even a regular 9-5 job. I can't afford the medical expenses to get repairment and my cochlear company MED-EL is not open to payment arrangements. So that makes it harder to be able to pay $500 at one time just for a piece out of the whole cochlear device, which is the important part. But NOW there is sweat resistance device called the Sonnet that will be available in the USA in spring time! It cost $9,600 and you guys have helped me raised up to $1,335. I just need 8,265 more. I'm excited to hear and dance again! While I'm forever waiting for waterproof development, please help me to hear again. Anything you can donate, even a DOLLAR OR TWO, I APPRECIATE it. As I am typing this, I am completely deaf. I believe in good deeds and you will be rewarded. Thank you in advance. Please help me!
