BATOD wishes CIICA as successful a second year as their first year as been. CIICA is a valuable community for so many across the world. Congratulations.
Can't believe that CIICA is now one year old! So much has been achieved and no doubt there is much more to come. It is great to know there is an international community of people who really understand and value the very great benefit of today's cochlear implant technology for those who use it and their families. The numbers of CI users continues to grow but let's hope the pace of that growth increases rapidly so that more people who could benefit from this technology are actually able to do so. Thanks to CIICA for highlighting the value and need of CIs. Happy birthday!!!!!
