THE GIFT OF HEARING

Client: The Gift of Hearing Foundation

Role: Videographer/Editor

This on-going project is about James Mohney, who was born hard-of-hearing and went completely deaf before his second birthday.

Even before James lost all hearing, his parents, Mike and Nadine, had begun researching the many ways they could support their son -- from enrolling in sign language classes as a family to pursuing cochlear implant surgery. They were dismayed, however, to find out that the expensive surgery was not covered by their medical insurance. James, however, received a cochlear implant, anyway, through the support of The Gift of Hearing Foundation, a program dedicated to providing cochlear implant surgery to those who cannot afford it. James is now able to hear through one ear, is learning how to speak and is scheduled to receive his second implant later this year.
