When a local baby was diagnosed with bilateral profound hearing loss, the Morro Bay Quota club in California rallied to help the family with the enormous expense associated with diagnosing and treating deafness. Medical bills are significant, but, for a family on the Central California Coast who must trek frequently some 277 miles south for care at Children’s Hospital in San Diego, travel expenses mount quickly.
The Morro Bay Quota club supported Katy and her family throughout months of testing and appointments as well as cochlear implant surgery. The club has been able to defray some of the family’s costs and has committed to helping into the future. As past club president and past District 33 governor DeLynn Guttry reported, “We look forward to fulfilling our mission as we share Katy’s journey into learning to listen.”
