Get Off Your Meds

New Cochleas, New Life
Dawn, 43, a mother of two, lost her hearing 15 years ago due to an unknown cause. She’s since communicated by reading lips and has never heard her 8-year-old son Asher’s voice. After learning she was a candidate for a cochlear implant, Dawn underwent the procedure to make a difference in her family’s life.
