It was one of the most moving thing’s Ellen has seen…A deaf mom being able to hear for the first time after receiving a new hearing device.
Sarah is 34 years old and is now able to hear the sound of her children’s voices. She was born with DNA that caused hairs in her ears not to form. The procedure Sarah underwent costs $30,000 just for one implant. Sarah and her husband couldn’t afford it and the procedure isn’t covered under insurance, that’s when Sarah’s mother-in-law stepped in. She cashed in her retirement and paid for Sarah’s procedure.
It’s stories like this that Ellen loves to be involved in. She had a huge surprise for the entire family. Grab the tissues, I was in tears by the end of the video.
