No luck with the Let Them Hear Foundation. I guess they only help those who have problems with gettung their insurance to pay for the implant. Me, I have no insurance at all whatsoever. I would have copied and pasted LTHF's response, but Yahoo's already cleaned out my trash mail.
Looks like the CNI CI Assistance program is my best bet, I just need to find funding to pay the hospital/surgery/doctor fees. I'll have to ask Rocky Mountain CI Center for approximate costs of such fees.
