"My Nucleus Cochlear Implants gave me back my hearing. They helped me participate in the show Survivor, which was an amazing experience. I would have never been able to go out there and play Survivor without them. It gave me that sense of 'I can do anything. If I can do this, I can do anything.'"

-Nina P. - Nucleus® recipient

When hearing aids were not enough for Nina

When 'Survivor' contestant Nina P. lost her hearing, she knew right away hearing aids weren't the answer she'd be looking for. She tried them for several months but could only hear the same mumbling she always heard, just louder. She knew there had to be something better. So, when she found out she qualified for a cochlear implant, she leapt at the opportunity to hear more clearly.

She wanted to understand what people were saying, and that's what her Cochlear Implants gave her along with confidence to take her adventurous spirit to new heights.
