“When we learned that Phoebe was profoundly deaf, it was scary not knowing whether she would ever be able to hear. We tried to find a solution to help her so she could have that rich, full life. Don’t let a diagnosis rob you of that time and that joy, because there are solutions and there is hope.”

- Cynthia S., Mother of Phoebe - Nucleus® recipient
