Deaf Woman Can't Contain Her Emotions When She Hears For The First Time! Hooray For Cochlear Implants!

| Filed under: InspirationHealthSurgeryAmazingHeartwarming

A woman, deaf all her life, can finally hear when her cochlear implants are turned on. She's overcome with emotion!

There are few things we love more than watching videos of people having their cochlear implants turned on for the first time.

Joanne Milne, is a 40-year-old woman who has Usher Syndrome, meaning she's been deaf since birth and started to lose her sight in her 20s.

She decided to have a life-changing operation to have cochlear implants fitted.

After an impossibly long four-week wait to have the implants switched on, the big day finally came.

All it took was her doctor to say the days of the week to bring her to tears.

She just could not hold back her tears as she was overcome by emotion, hearing for the very first time.

She said:

"I can’t stop crying and I can already foresee how it’s going to be life changing. I’m so happy. Over the last 48 hours hearing someone laughing behind me, the birds twittering and just being with friends… they didn’t have to tap my arm to get my attention which a massive leap."

That's so amazing!! We're so so happy for her!

So, wanna see her incredible reaction to being able to hear?

Then check out the video (below) and prepare to feel all warm inside.
