Let’s Cure Tinnitus and Hyperacusis

£3,335 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 132 people in 24 days

Having Tinnitus and/or Hyperacusis can completely devastate a person’s life, and yet, it’s not really talked about all that much. You could say it’s a hidden illness but that would be an understatement, so I want to help change this. There have been far too many tragic suicides that have gone unnoticed in the public eye and this simply cannot continue. 

Danny Boy selflessly dedicated a lot of his time to helping others with this awful affliction; he was a true inspiration to many and an esteemed member of Tinnitus Talk. Sadly, in his case, he developed more problems because of his tinnitus and this had a dramatic impact on his quality of life. However, his cause of death at this present moment is still unknown. He was only 27 and left behind a young daughter, so I cannot express how saddening and tragic this is.

I am pleading with you all to make a donation towards Tinnitus Research, today, and to help make the breakthrough we need. No one should have to suffer like this. All donors will be involved in a democratic process to decide who the beneficiary of our fund will be. More details can be found here, from David Stockdale, the CEO of the BTA:

A message from Daniel’s family:

Daniel was an intelligent, humorous and caring person. He was passionate about helping sufferers of Tinnitus whilst suffering with it himself. He spent hours online researching possible solutions and was adamant there would be a cure for Tinnitus one day. Daniel was an inspirational young man who motivated a lot of people to follow their dreams. Daniel will be truly missed by many. Danny, we love you.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your donations, and participation, in Daniel's fund, so far. Please keep liking and sharing this on your social media as spreading the word is a key aspect to this campaign. Not only does it raise more awareness of this condition, but it also generates more money for the fund.

The British Tinnitus Association will earmark the money for research purposes. Obviously, the more we raise, the more of an impact it will have.

We continue to offer our condolences to Daniel's friends, and family.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
