He received a cochlear implant from the Public Health Ministry 5 years ago but unfortunately the outer apparatus has stopped functioning.
He is on the public health list for a new one but that may take one to two years.
Dr. Diego Maldonado contacted Salud Auditiva and yesterday and we took Mario's implant in to be repaired.
It will take a few months (it is repaired in Austria!), but Mario will be set for the next year or so until he receives his new implant.
Mario and his mother are so thankful he will be able to continue to hear!
Thanks to the doctors, Salud Auditiva, and mostly our donors' generosity which makes these little miracles possible.
