"When Booray and I are walking down the street and having a conversation, I feel wonderful, amazed and touched. I'm thankful that the Cochlear implant has brought happiness to me."

- Mother of Booray, Cochlear™ Nucleus® recipient, China

Booray on his way to being bi-lingual

Booray's mother couldn't face the fact that her son failed his hearing test at birth, and again at age one. But then she found out about Cochlear and Booray received his implant when he was 18 months old.

Now in a mainstream high school, Booray is learning English and Chinese, and his mother says he has the confidence to speak up in class.

Outside of school, Booray enjoys playing soccer with his friends. And he loves it when he hears them call his name.
