Watch as a Teenage Girl Hears for First Time

But after receiving an auditory brainstem implant at University Hospitals, that all changed. Watch this amazing and moving video, and witness the joy on 14-year-old Maggie’s face when she hears her father’s voice for the first time and explores a new world filled with sound.
