Valencia, Calif., October 25, 2007 - Jacqueline Law, a well renowned actress in Asia, recently completed her hearing journey at Advanced Bionics headquarters in Valencia, Calif. when she visited the manufacturer that provided her with bionic ears that can hear. Law, who lost her hearing eight years ago as a result of an unknown cause while on a scuba diving trip, hopes to share her hearing journey with the world as she wraps up filming her documentary, The Deafening Sound of Silence and My Journey Back to Life, chronicling her hearing journey from beginning to end.
Laws inspiration for the documentary stemmed from her personal experience while she was initially considering a cochlear implant - the only technology approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to restore a human sense - as she was unsure of the impact the implant would have on her acting career. Law, who hopes to finalize the documentary by March 2008, continues to have a successful acting career and because of her implant has been able to serve as an inspirational role model to the 100,000 individuals worldwide who are using this technology to hear the world more clearly.
