Deaf Single Mum Brought To Tears After Hearing Again | Breaking The Silence Live

04:10

The incredibly moving documentary can't help but have EVERYONE sobbing with joy...

The Channel 4 documentary has single handedly restored our faith in humanity, after the TV show introduced us to single mum Rebecca, her sister Amy and her three-year-old son.

9 years ago Rebecca had an unexplained loos of hearing in her right ear. 

Then, as if that wasn't enough, 16 weeks ago she tragically went deaf in her left ear too.

"I've had to learn new ways of trying to communicate with him" explains a defiant Rebecca, as she bravely battles her condition, to give her son the best possible life.

However, with the help of audiologist Hugh Cooper, everything is about to change for the better.

When the mother of one visited Manchester Royal Infirmary with her sister Amy as part of Breaking the Silence Live, we see her hear again for the first time since she lost her hearing, thanks to the help of a cochlear implant. 

The show has clearly struck a cord with viewers who have taken to Twitter to discuss the importance of communicating with deaf people so that they don't feel alienated.
