Description:

When she was a teenager, Arlene Romoff's hearing slowly started to slip away-until no hearing aid or other standard device could help her anymore. She had become completely deaf. But thanks to the miracle of technology-including her upgrade to state-of-the-art bilateral cochlear implants-Arlene went from silence to beautiful sound once again.
