Client: The Gift of Hearing Foundation

Role: Videographer/Editor

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. After many difficult months, the Mohneys were introduced to The Gift of Hearing Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing cochlear implant surgery to those who cannot afford it. This video chronicles the Mohney family's journey as they prepare for James' first implant surgery, recovery and device activation.
