Project Description

The Duncan-Iles Foundation, Inc. awarded financial assistance to a local family of a three year old child born with malformed ears that has been using a special Baja hearing aid device since the child was six months old.  Financial assistance was granted to purchase a one-year extended insurance coverage for an existing hearing aid device.  At the age of four the child will undergo a surgical procedure to implant a small Cochlear hearing aid device to stimulate the auditory nerve to the brain, which recognizes the signal as sounds to help acquire speech, language and social skills.
