“Sloan Churman, Deaf Woman, Hears Herself For First Time”
Sloan Churman, 29, was born deaf. Until recently, she had never heard the sound of her own voice. But thanks to a hearing implant, Churman was finally given that ability.
I love stories of how advances in medical technology help the disabled but I have to wonder myself what it would sound like to hear my own voice after 29 years of silence.
If, after hearing Lil Wayne for the first time and then declaring him the best rapper ever, I’m chugging a gallon of Slurpee.
