Deaf Woman Hears Her Own Voice for the First Time

For the first time in her life, 29 year-old Sarah Churman, who was born deaf, has finally heard her own voice. She was born with a genetic deformity that has left her with a severe hearing impairment.

Sarah, a married mother-of-two was fitted with a state-of-the-art hearing implant nine weeks ago. It was meant to be able to help her hear for the first time, and after having spent the vast majority of her life in silence, she has heard the sound of her own voice for the very first time.

Her husband, Sloan, filmed the whole thing and they then decided to put it up on the internet to share with their friends and family. It has now gone viral after having amassed well over 4,000,000 views.

We all know that technology has the potential to change the world, both in regards to medical breakthrough’s and many other ways too, but this is one of the first times that technology has affected someone’s life in such a way! With things like digital hearing aids leading the way for technological breakthroughs especially with things like helping people hear for the first time, or even devices that will help people see for the first time then you just know that it is definitely something that we’ll be seeing more of in the future, especially if there are more major breakthroughs.

As we’ve seen here, these kinds of things can have a life changing effect on people who have spent their life being affected by a sight problem or a hearing problem. So if there is more research done and people start looking into these sorts of things then there may be many more people all around the world who are reaping the benefits.
