First Sounds in Kitchener

mouseAl just wrote me about First Sounds, a blog written by Derry, a former Deaf Mute who had his life changed by a specialist who did an implant surgery giving him the ability to hear and speak. Al does a far better job describing First Sounds.

Hi Mike,

It's Al, one of your faithful readers and a fellow blogger. I don't normally do this, but I felt compelled to let you know about a blog I've been reading that may interest you. I write about it on my own blog here. The blog is called First Sounds. I feel it's very important that this kid's story be read by as many people as possible. Since your readership is a lot larger than my own, I thought that maybe you could (that is, if you agree with me) direct some readers his way.

Thanks for your time and Happy Holidays.

Al

The blog only has 15 entries thus far, but it's pretty hearty stuff and well written. The author is now dealing with a tumour on the base of his brain stem. He's in Kitchener, Ontario, which is about 100 km west of Toronto for you out-of-towners.

Derry sounds like an awfully brave kid. If you seek perspective, click on through.

Thank you very much for the link-through Mike. I hope everyone who reads his blog either gets some strength from his message or at the very least gains some perspective on life as I did.

Hey Mike,

Derry goes into hospital tomorrow for pre-op work as they are going to try to remove his tumor.

Not sure if you were up-to-date on this incredible "kids" contribution and journey in our world.....

He's one amazing kid....
