As a musician born with 2 microtias(undeveloped Ears) I’ve been deaf my whole life. With the use of a hearing aid I’ve been able to live a functional life. My current hearing aid is dated and my hearing is getting worse with age. Insurance only covers half a hearing aid which can cost up to $6000. The goal should be able to cover the cost of a new hearing aid in addition some preliminary testing for a canalplasty which would repair my microtias and grant me unassisted hearing.
With the campaign I've attached a video of some music I helped to write with my band Negativehate, which was done without hearing. Imagine what I could do with hearing!
