As a Charitable Business, on 27th July Page1 will be taking part in a 5km Inflatable Obstacle Run, in support of Microtia UK .
Relatively unknown, Microtia affects one in 6000 babies. It seems to affect more boys than girls and is more prevalent in the right ear than the left.
In Betsy's case (left in image), she will have reconstructive surgery if she wants it when she is around 8-10, purely for aesthetic reasons, as she will always have one sided hearing loss and will wear a BAHA (battery assisted hearing aid). She is doing great at school and is a happy, confident little girl.
Microtia UK depends on charitable donations - we’d really like to help in their quest to make a difference to children’s lives!
All donations, big or small, will be gratefully received.
