Ellen has a Huge Surprise for a Deaf Mother. Watch What she Does On-Air

Sarah was born with DNA that caused the hairs in her middle ears to keep from forming. She is the mother of two young children, and up until recently, she was completely deaf.
In the video below, Ellen talks with Sarah just eight days after she received her very first hearing device. For the first time in 34 years, Sarah has heard things she’s never heard before, from the sound of her children’s voices to her husband’s loud snoring.
Since Sarah and her husband haven’t been able to afford the procedure that allows Sarah to hear because it costs $30,000 per ear she only has one implant. Sarah’s mother-in-law, Lari, did something incredible. She cashed in her retirement savings to pay for Sarah’s hearing device — not covered by insurance — out of her own pocket.
Ellen was so touched by Lari’s selfless act of kindness that she decided to invite the entire family on her show. Now, Ellen has a huge surprise for them. She teamed up with the company that supplied Sarah with her original implant… but you have to watch the video to see the surprise for yourself
