HOUSTON, Tex. (WPVI) -- A Houston man is enjoying an early Christmas gift, a gift that many of us take for granted.
Someone stole David Auer's hearing aids.
He couldn't afford new ones, so he was living in a muted world, mainly communicating through sign language.
The miracle-ear foundation stepped up to help him.
They fitted him with new state-of-the-art hearing aids.
Auer says the best part of the gift was when he heard classic rock music again.
Something he hadn't been able to enjoy in a long time.
