Narrated by Vadruhi, Liza´s Mom
Hello, my name is Varduhi, I am Liza’s Mom. We live in Nor Hachn Town in Armenia. I am quite excited to write Liza’s story as we met many obstacles on our way to huge success.
Liza is my second child, she has an elder brother who is normally hearing. When Liza was an one year old child we noticed that she didn’t react to noises at all. We took her to Arabkir Paediatric Medical Center where she was diagnosed 4th grade of sensorineural hearing loss. It was a real shock to our family. At that moment we were ready to do everything for our baby girl. We were advised to go to Erebouni Medical Center where we found out about Cochlear implantations. When we were told about the huge amount of money needed for her salvation, first thing that came to our mind was to sell our nice apartment in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia, and pay for the Cochlear implantation. We decided not to wait for years until we find a donor for Liza as we were clearly explained about the risks and that her chances of learning to hear and speak could be lost during the time.
