The Story

Jacob was born profoundly deaf in his right ear and severely deaf in his left ear, he has spent his life going through tests in order to apply for funding support for a cochlear implant to provide Jacob with hearing in his right ear. Even after a thorough fight by specialists in the deaf unit of St Thomas' hospital we have unfortunately been denied financial aid. Therefore we now need to go privately. This comes at a cost of approximately £40,000. Obviously, the sooner Jacob gets this the quicker he can adapt and improve his speaking and listening skills. We are hoping that we can raise the funds whilst Jacob is still in Reception which he begins in September.

With guaranteed money coming in before the new year, we are very happy to announce that we will have reached our target and be able to go ahead with the surgery on the 10th January!

Thank you to everyone that has made this possible and for getting Jacob the best Christmas present ever! 🎁

Any money that we receive over the amount needed for surgery and accessories such as waterproofing will go towards extra speech and language sessions for Jacob.

Thanks again for all of your efforts and support! Jacob is very lucky for every one of his supporters 💙

There has become a slot available for the 10th of January, so if we can get the funds together by then we can have Jacob's surgery! 
The date is pencilled in as I have promised we will have the funds by then so lets make this a reality finally!

As we were so close to our target we contacted the hospital to discuss the next steps and to get our final quote after being given the £40k estimate. We have now been told that we need £44,000 to book and pay for the surgery. The next available slot is at the end of January so it would be amazing if we could get the funds raised by then! You have all been so amazing I truly think that this is possible!
