      Stephen’s Story: Cochlear implants transformed my life

      Help make life-changing technologies and treatments happen

      After losing his hearing suddenly at 55, Stephen had to retire early. He said “I had hearing aids fitted and carried on teaching for a couple of years, but I felt I was bluffing my job and I had to stop. It was absolutely devastating.”

      Stephen was very fortunate to have a cochlear implant fitted in 2016 and while it has truly transformed his life, there’s still so much we need to do to ensure more people can benefit from cochlear implants and other treatments.

      With your help more people could benefit from a cochlear implant

      Did you know that currently only 5% of people who are eligible for a cochlear implant choose to have one? You can make sure that number rises by investing in future research today.

      A donation from you could help fund talented scientists who are working hard to make cochlear implants work more effectively and make this life-changing technology accessible to even more people.

      Thank you for all of your wonderful support. It is only thanks to people like you that Stephen has access to life-changing technology. We really enjoyed writing this edition of In the Loop, I hope you enjoy reading it just as much! And don’t forget that you can also read the newsletter online and share it with your family and friends too.
