My story

[p]As many of you will know, our daughter Emily (now 13) is profoundly deaf.[/p][p]Having been born hearing, she gradually lost her hearing and was diagnosed profoundly deaf just before her 4th birthday.[/p][p]During this time, we had a frustrated little girl who was struggling to communicate with the hearing world, with hearing parents, a hearing brother (and a daft dog!).[/p][p]Emily underwent bilateral cochlear implant surgery just before her 5th birthday and entered the hearing world for the second time in 5 years. [/p][p]'How did you cope?' , some would ask......[/p][p]Firstly, because not coping wasn't really an option, but more importantly because of the amazing friends and family that surrounded us and the charities that came to our rescue :)[/p][p]Deaf Action were one of those amazing charities who threw us, and Ems, a lifeline. [/p][p]Ems joined their youth group, Deaf Express aged 9 and never looked back. [/p][p]We'd like to give them something back for what they have done for us and Ems and now all I need to do is run The Edinburgh Ultra Marathon this October and Run The London Marathon next year....yikes! [/p][p]Easy peezy lemon squeezy...said no one EVER![/p][p]Please join me (don't panic, you don't have to run!) in raising as much as possible for this amazing charity.[/p][p]Any donation, no matter how small is amazing[/p][p]Nicky and Ems xx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
