Andrea Diaz underwent a cochlear implant surgery and at her check-up, her mom and her boyfriend planned something beautiful for her first day of hearing!

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that can replace the function of a damaged inner ear. 

It works by picking up and processing sounds, then delivering them directly to a person’s brain. Now, as you can imagine, she was absolutely elated to hear for the first time, but it was about to get even better!

Watch the emotional moment here:

This was the best day of her life, for sure! What's been the best day of yours?
