"My dream for my son is I want him to have lots of friends, regular conversations, and secrets; and come back home and tell me about his date and chatter non-stop."

- Rebecca, mother of Nahum, Cochlear™ implant recipient

After bilateral implant surgery, Nahum and his family are excited about the big moment when a hearing health specialist switches on his Cochlear™ implants for the first time.

Nahum's mother, Rebecca, explains her family was concerned how her son would handle life without any intervention.

Profoundly deaf prior to his surgery, Rebecca believes Nahum now has a future full of the unlimited possibilities that are within the reach of any hearing child.
