VIDEO: Watch the moment when a deaf woman hears for the first time
After suffering from a rare genetic disorder since birth, a woman from the United Kingdom has had her hearing restored.
Joanne Milne, 39, who has been profoundly deaf since birth, has been fitted with special bilateral cochlear implants to enable hearing.
Watch Joanne become overwhelmed with happiness when her implants are switched on and she hears her doctor recite the days of the week.
Her friend Treymane Crossly recorded this incredible moment and posted it to YouTube for the world to share her joy.
