Bailey was diagnosed with a severe to profound hearing loss when he was 2 years old. He received hearing aids at this time and at 7 years of age received a cochlear implant to help him hear. Bailey has never let his deafness stop him from achieving his goals or participating in all aspects of life, particularly basketball. Growing up in country South Australia has meant that Bailey has been very isolated as a Deaf Hard of Hearing individual, with limited opportunities to meet other Deaf people.
Taking part in the champs will allow him to combine his love of basketball with the opportunity to meet and make friends with many deaf individuals from Australia and around the globe, something that would otherwise not be possible
We are so proud of Bailey for making the Australian team and now we need your help and support to make this a reality.
