Amazing Medicine: Girl Hears For First TimeAmazing Medicine: Girl Hears For First Time I posted the other day about an amazing double-arm replacement surgery, and as I was poking around online I found another medical story that made my jaw drop. Ten year old Sammie Hicks was bAmazing Medicine: Girl Hears For First Timeorn with a genetic mutation that stole her hearing. Since that time, Sammie had been wearing a hearing aid and reading lips, until recently when she received a cochlear implant and heard for the first time (her family posted her reaction to hearing on YouTube, and as you can imagine it's already gone viral). What's even more amazing? Sammie has a 9 year old brother named Jacob who lost his hearing two years ago and has just received a cochlear implant himself, with spectacular results. I can't imagine the joy their parents are feeling right now!
