Life In Between with David
The first time you hear is pretty magical and special but so is the ability to hear each and every day! My wife and I have two little boys whom we adore. Something about hearing them say "Daddy or dada" or my oldest saying, "watch this!" is a miracle to me. While being able to hear with a cochlear implant is amazing, there is also a part of me that lives in between two worlds. The deaf and the hearing.
My name is David Cluff and I lost all my hearing overnight at age six due to the CMV virus. Six months after that devastating morning, I got my first cochlear implant and a new chapter began. It is interesting how my perspective of life has changed since that morning. I never thought I would end up dreaming about hearing with two years. At age 14, that dream came true.
Today, I am a proud father of two very energetic boys with a third on the way!
