hear again

3 years ago I started losing my hearing in both ears , after only 3 months I became totally deaf in both ears. A 6 day hosptal stay resulted in a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis and 80,000 dollars in hospital bills. Consults with an ENT and audiologist said cochlear implants were the only treatment 50,000 dollars with medicare paying about 75% after ENT approval. I am eligible for a small ss check at 67 years old ( 750 dollars  ) and still work part-time ( computer graphics ) Savings are all gone and I have no family that are able to help. The isolation that this has caused in my life is slowly taking its toll, my name is Patrick Fowler and this is the first time I've ever needed help
