Alex was born with Microtia (literally ‘little ear’) Microtia is a congenital deformity where the pinna (external ear) is underdeveloped which is further complicated in Alex’s case with aural atresia, which is the absence of an external ear canal and renders him deaf on that side.
We’re trying to reach our initial target of £30,000 which will enable Alex to have the opportunity to travel to the USA to see specialist Dr John Reinisch to reconstruct Alex’s ear for him and restore his hearing.
