Elliot's Story

I read about Elliot in this article from the Denver Post. His mother is right about the statement that “deaf people can’t use regular phones or pay phones” being wrong. It was a blanket statement. There are still plenty like me who can’t use the phone… yet.
Anyway, the site talks about screening, candidacy, the device (he uses MED-EL), surgery, and all the stuff I went through except Elliot is an amazing and adorable toddler.
