Joanne Milne, 40, grew up with Usher Syndrome, a condition which has caused her to be deaf from birth.
She recently underwent a life-changing operation in which she was fitted with cochlear implants that help provide hearing for individuals who are profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing.
Joanne's implants were switched on March 24, allowing her to hear for the very first time. Her mother, present for the happy occasion, recorded her daughter's beautiful reaction to sound.
