Hi, I'm Jacob. My sister has cochlear implants. Because of her miracle ears, I can laugh and sing with her. As a family, we cannot imagine our lives without her amazing ears!
Songs for Sound is a non-profit organization, inaugurated by Kevin & Jaime Vernon, parents of toddler and cochlear implant recipient, “Lexi” Alexis Vernon.
The focus of the organization is to is to promote Cochlear Implant Awareness. We will find the children who are not being given this miracle and help them seek a mainstream life! We also, financially support cochlear implant programs, pediatric patients and their families, tell the world about cochlear implants, how cochlear implants work, how bilateral implantation has changed our lives, and how cochlear implants can change the lives of thousands of deaf individuals.
Many people are moderately deaf and benefit from hearing aids. There is a large group of severe to profoundly deaf people who receive little to no benefit from hearing aids, but they can benefit from cochlear implants. Simply put, Songs for Sound was established to inform the community of the miracle of cochlear implants.
Give the gift of sound through song, so they, too, can hear and heal through music.
