Up until recently, a woman named Sarah was completely deaf. The mother of two was born with a condition that caused the hairs in her middle ears to keep from properly forming.But after receiving her very first hearing device, Sarah could hear for the first time in 34 years. From the sound of her children’s voices to her husband’s loud snoring, there were so many new sounds to explore.
The life-changing procedure would cost Sarah and her husband $30,000 per ear, and with two young kids at home, they just couldn’t raise the funds.
That’s when Sarah’s mother-in-law, Lari, stepped in with an incredible and selfless act of kindness: She used her retirement savings to pay for Sarah’s hearing device.
In the video below, Ellen sits down with Sarah just eight days after receiving her first hearing aid.
