JLCIF SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLKIT

ABOUT JLCIF:  Joyful Life Cochlear Implant Fund (JLCIF) believes that no cochlear implant (CI) recipient should be without sound because they can’t afford replacement parts.

We are also committed to the well-being of every recipient. JLCIF provides two critical areas of help—cochlear implant product support and confidence coaching.

Recipients rely on cochlear technology to be a part of the everyday hearing world. Some face hardships and cannot afford the equipment or new technologies to help them hear and may struggle due to their lack of self-esteem and fear. That’s where JLCIF comes in; we support cochlear implant recipients in need. A unique part of this fund is our life and confidence coaching to empower each (CI) recipient to achieve their full potential in all areas of their life.
