“Help Trevor Hear”

I'm asking for your help for my nephew Trevor to purchase a hearing aid. Trevor lost the hearing in his right ear after his 6th grade year. Cysts had destroyed the bones of his inner ear and begun to "eat" toward his brain. A radical mastoidectomy was performed to remove the cyst, but left him without hearing in his ear. For the first time, because of new technological advances, there is a type of "Receiver-in-Canal" hearing aid that will allow him to hear from the damaged ear and pass a hearing test to become a State Trooper. Please donate to help Trevor purchase this device and continue his quest to serve our nation and community.

Trevor dreamed of serving his nation by joining the military and looked forward to being a 4th generation serviceman. Even though he was hearing impaired, it did not stop him in this pursuit. While in high school, he excelled in school and rose to the rank of Battalion Commander of this highly competitive Junior ROTC program. Continuing his quest, he joined the Army ROTC program at Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi. It was during his Freshman year that he received the news that he would be medically disqualified for military service due to his hearing condition. It was during this time that he changed his degree to Criminal Justice and would pursue becoming a law enforcement officer with hopes of joining the Texas State Troopers.

He very much wanted to serve our nation, but would now take a more local and statewide approach. Trevor has worked as a security guard to help pay his way through school and will graduate with honors in May, and has passed all of the preliminary requirements to become a Trooper. We recently found out about a new type of hearing aid that has allowed him to pass the hearing requirements. Trevor was reluctant about us asking for your help, because he is a very proud young man. Trevor has agreed to let us help him continue his mission of service and has made the promise that he will also give to "go fund me" accounts once he has graduated and employed. Please help support this amazing young man.
