A magic moment for Suzi…
We heard from Suzi Rees earlier in 2013 after her awesome appearance promoting NF2 and her organisation iDID Adventure on the BBC programme ‘See Hear’.
This web exclusive footage released on the BBC yesterday shows the very special moment that Suzi had her cochlear implant switched on for the very first time back in 2011.
Suzi lost her hearing as a result of NF2 related bilateral acoustic neuromas, She was later fitted with a device called a cochlear implant which has helped to provide her with a sense of sound.
Unfortunately there are not any subtitles on the video but Suzi’s priceless reaction around 02:15 says it all. If you want to experience that feeling of welling-up due to happiness then take a look at this! Golden.
