I am writing this on behalf of my daughter Hrithika Kurella who is 18months old, diagnosed with total hearing loss. We got to know about this after a few months on her monthly check-up. Like every parent, we were not able to digest this and went for the second opinion. We also visited India, anticipating that she can get back her hearing without surgery. But things didn't go as expected, and we were told to prepare for surgery as early as possible, and if delayed further, chances of getting back her hearing will be decreased by 5% every month. She has to undergo Implant surgery to get back her hearing. Without this surgery, she couldn't hear and speak also.
Surgery costs 50,000 USD. We need help and support from the family and community to withstand these difficult times. This go-fund-me campaign is to raise funds to support expenses related to Hritika's Cochlear Implant Surgery.
