My story

[p]Our story starts in 2016 when my Wife & I welcomed our firstborn, Kobe, into the world.[/p][p]During the first 72 hours Kobe underwent multiple newborn hearing screenings, each test coming back ‘inconclusive.’ At a week old we took a trip back to the hospital to do one final screening, which showed non responsive.[/p][p]We got a quick referral to Bedfordshire Audiology who undertook further tests which would show the severity of Kobe’s hearing loss. It was at this point that we were told that Kobe had moderate/severe bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. We would later make a visit to GOSH for an MRI to determine if there was any damage to the ear canals or cochlear – which came back normal.[/p][p]At only 10 weeks old, Kobe was fitted with his first hearing aids (Video attached – try not to cry).[/p][p]Kobe has grown and developed so much and we are so proud of the handsome, funny, chatty, caring young man he has become.[/p][p]We are so grateful for all the work that the NDCS does and for the support and information that they have provided us with over the last few years, from advice in the early days, to helping us build a case for Kobe to get the technology that he needed. Nothing was too much hassle. [/p][p]I hope you can find it in your hearts (and pockets) to support me, Kobe and the thousands of other children and families supported by the NDCS.[/p][p]Thank You & Stay safe.[/p]
