WordPress Community – Can We Help Walter Raise Money for His Son’s Cochlear Implants?
Hey, WordPress community.
This post is a bit of a departure from our usual focus on the WordPress software because the humans behind that software are also important.
In this post, we’re focused on one person in the WordPress community – Walter Lopez, a WordPress developer from Honduras.
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Walter got the horrible diagnosis that his 1.5-year-old son was diagnosed with Bilateral Profound Sensorineural Hearing Loss (essentially deafness).
There is a solution – cochlear implants in both ears. However, because of his son’s young age, the cochlear implants need to be done soon to prevent long-term motor development issues.
The total cost is $63,200 for the two cochlear implants plus $12,000 for hospitalization and surgery costs – $75,000 in total.
