Skye Carter was born completely deaf.  As a baby, her family was told she had no hope for ever hearing, they should learn sign language and that Skye should go to the school for the deaf.  Skye gained the ability to hear after cochlear implant surgery at 20 months old. Today, Skye enjoys playing instruments and dancing.  She attends a regular school.  Thanks to the Alfred Mann Foundation and the technical innovation of the cochlear implant, we helped this child realize the miracle of sound and have the opportunity to live a full life.
