Rebecca is the light of my world and an inspiration to a lot of people. I love her positive attitude and desire to help everyone she meets, even when she is struggling herself. In addition to living with an acute hearing loss since childhood Rebecca now also struggles with mobility issues meaning that many everyday tasks can be a challenge. With the help of an amazing local audiologist, Rebecca has managed to keep her hearing aids working for over 11 years (their working life is quoted at around five years!) Sadly, we have been told that, due to their age, her hearing aids are no longer supported by the manufacturer. The next time something goes wrong they cannot be repaired so we are living on borrowed time. We are not able to source appropriate hearing aids on the National Health Service so we have to pay for them ourselves. Due to the level of Rebecca’s hearing loss the audiologist has told us the pair she needs will cost around £3,150. Can you help? Whatever you can give would be gratefully received!
