Daughter helps mother during hearing loss journey

Summarized by Matthew Dehler, staff writer

In Johnson City, Tennessee, four children have been chosen to donate hearing aids to one who has had a large impact in their life. One such child is Sarah Ball, daughter of Sherry Ball. Sherry was diagnosed with hearing loss at age 46, in October 2019, presumably due to ear infections. Sarah had lost her hearing at the age of two, and upon receiving the news, Sherry quit her job and devoted herself to helping her daughter get used to her new cochlear implants. Thanks to regular speech therapy and her devoted mother, Sarah has regained a large amount of her ability to speak and understand words – and now she is able to repay the favor. Her mother will receive a 5,000 dollar price tag at a private event in early 2020.
