Isn’t it wonderful what technology can do. Imagine being able to hear for the first time after 29 years, what an awesome experience this must have been for her.
From You Tube Sept 26th 2011:-
I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time 🙂 Edit: For those of you who have asked the implant I received was Esteem offered by Envoy Medical. Sarah Churman.
If you click onto the picture below, you can also watch a news article about this implant, the cost was $30,000, a small price to pay I feel for the benefits it achieved.
