Mary Grace learns to swim at 68 years old

Mary Grace is no stranger to hearing loss. She got her first Cochlear implant in 2005 and her second just a few years ago.

She says hearing again not only made her feel part of conversations and better connected to her grandson; it also gave her the courage to fulfil a life-long dream.

As Mary Grace approached her 68th birthday, she decided it was finally time to learn how to swim.
