Maggie Gleason was born without cochleas – the small, snail-shaped inner ear bones that are the primary organ of hearing – and couldn’t hear for the first 14 years of her life. 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.
