Middle Ear Implant Technology Brings Sound to Texas Mother of Two

Science Care serves as the link between those that wish to donate their body to medical science and the researchers and educators that need human tissue to advance medicine. Donors participate in various life enhancing projects ranging from cancer treatment to heart valve repair to minimally invasive hip replacement research and surgical training.  To help illustrate the real life impact of donation on people today, Science Care recently asked Sarah Churman, 30, about her personal experiences receiving a revolutionary middle ear implant device to improve her lifelong genetic hearing loss. Whole body donors aid in the development of such technology and in the training of surgeons performing these types of procedures.  Sarah, a mother and wife living with her family in Texas has dealt with deafness her entire life. Her specific type of hearing loss is a genetic abnormality that was discovered at about 18 months of age.
