Born with the rare condition called Usher Syndrome, 39-year-old Joanne Milne has been profoundly deaf since birth, and in her mid-20s the disease also claimed her sight. That’s according to a report from The Independent.

Watch her amazing and life-changing moment – when her cochlear implants allowed her to hear for the very first time.

The video was captured by her mother, according to the report. It’s the moment the implants were turned on.
