Raylan was born with severe hearing loss and has worn hearing aids her entire life. Most people don't know because she doesn't talk about it, and doesn't use it as a crutch in life. She is an amazing, independent, self-starter and has always worked hard to achieve her goals by herself.
This morning one of her hearing aids stopped working and she is having to take time from work to go figure out why. She does not have a back up pair since they are shockingly expensive. Even batteries cost too much and she has to change them every three/four days.
I am not an expert on this, but most insurance does not cover hearing aids for someone her age. The most she has been able to get covered is around $500, but her current plan through work doesn't.
This Christmas I want to give Raylan the gift of a brand new pair of hearing aids that are up to date, and help her with the basic human function of hearing just like the rest of us. She cried when she first heard the soft hum of a refrigerator, because of the advances in hearing aids.
One HA costs around $3,000 meaning a PAIR is around $6,000
I'm making the goal $6,500 so that we can get her the bells and whistles that she deserves! Anything left over will go towards extra batteries or expenses to help repair this broken set.
