Help Dustin to Continue to Hear
My husband, Dustin, lost his hearing at age 12 and received one of the first Cochlear implants in this area as a child. The device is now 15 years old and needs to be replaced. His insurance company is denying coverage stating its an elective issue. This doesn’t enhance his hearing. It IS his hearing. I know we all have our struggles, but any help, whether monitory or prayers, would be helpful. $1 will go a long way. Please SHARE this to your Facebook. Thanks to everyone who has contributed and those who have shared this. May God bless you

We would like to tell you Aiden Ellerbrock’s story. He is the son of Victoria Ellerbrock and the late Trevor Ellerbrock. On July 1, 2015, Aiden was being a typical 11 year old boy, playing with neighborhood friends. While riding on his rip stick, he had an accident and suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. Aiden was transported to Van Wert County Hospital then life-flighted to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana with a subdural hemtoma. In attempts to save his life he immediately underwent a craniotomy. Having beat all odds he did pull through, and was kept in their pediatric intensive care unit for about approximately a month before he was transferred to Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital for extensive rehabilitation. We are asking for help in funding for said expenses by hosting two events. The first event will be a Quarter Auction occurring on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 located at Trinity Friends Church 605 N. Franklin St. in Van Wert. The second event will be a Corn Hole/Poker Tournament on Saturday, October 10, 2015 located at the Moose Lodge 740 W. Ervin Rd.
Your contribution will help fund these events, which in return helps Aiden progress in his long road of recovery. Any monetary amount or item(s) will be greatly appreciated and used accordingly.
Thank you so much for your generosity in helping us help Aiden’s meet his goals, of his long road to recovery. Please accept our sincerest thanks, on behalf of Aiden and his family, Thank-you
Congenital Heart Walk Cincinnati
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONGENITAL HEART WALK COMES TO EDEN PARK
Cincinnati, OH, Saturday, October 10, 2015, The Children’s Heart Foundation and Adult Congenital Heart Foundation (ACHA) will sponsor the annual Congenital Heart Walk at Eden Park in Cincinnati, OH. Registration begins at 10:00 a.m., and the walk begins at 11:00 a.m.
CHD is the #1 birth defect in the world, impacting millions of families each year. This family-friendly 1 mile walk and rally raises funds which will be split between The Children’s Heart Foundation and ACHA. Congenital Heart Walk supporters can sign up ahead of time to walk individually or in teams by registering at www.congenitalheartwalk.org or by calling (215) 856-4373.
This event is also sponsored by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Heart Institute, Mended Little Hearts, The Kidz Club of NKY and Dr. Headlight.
Approximately 40,000 babies are born with a congenital heart defect every year in the United States alone. These conditions often result in multiple surgical procedures, life-long disabilities, and all too often, death.
I am a mother of a child with a Congenital Heart Defect also known as CHD. It is scary to know that your child needs to have open heart surgery and that the odds are stacked against them. We need awareness raised to help raise funds to increase the research of CHD’s. Knowing that your child may not make it through surgery and then if they do will have to spend the rest of their lives being monitored by a cardiologist is overwhelming. There are many Congenital Heart Defects, some are more common than others but they are there and we need more research to help save these children. Please help up spread the word about this event. My daughter would not be here today had there not been research into Congenital Heart Defects.
Thank you for your time.
