Help Us Pay for Liv's BAHA Device

This is our daughter Liv and we asking for help from anyone who can donate.  Liv is 5 years old and attends Kindergarten as a Deaf Education Student.  When she was born she passed her newborn hearing test.  Since she was a twin her and her sister had their own language but it wasn’t developed for normal 3 year olds.  We were able to get them into school at the age of 3 for speech delayed.  It was then that a simple school hearing test and a trip to the schools Audiology Department discover she had Severe to Profound hearing loss in her left ear.  After multiple audiology test and consults it determine that the initial report was accurate.  We were then told by her by the doctors at the time she was not a candidate for any kind of aid.  So we were left with the Deaf Education Program at her school, which has been amazing and supportive.  She receives Speech Therapy and she has become independant and her speech has improved.  After more 2 routine Audiology test one by the District and one by her outside Speech Therapy Session they recommended we try one more time to see if she would be a candidate for a Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA).  We decided to make another visit to a new Doctor to see if it was possible.  After reviewing all her paperwork from past test from previous Doctor visits we were told us YES, she will benefit from this device.  Now we are getting the device order to have her start using it as soon as possible.  Now comes the financial problem we face with getting our Liv the device she needs. We do have health insurance but due to the very high deductible we will be paying for most of it out of pocket. We are now in a financial bind due to my gallbladder surgery which we are paying out of pocket as well.  We are asking for help so we can get Liv the device she needs to be more alert and flourish even more than she already as in the last two years with her school and teachers help. Anything will help us at this time.  Thank You Yvonne and Jose Pastrana
