FOX 61 is reporting that a Bristol nun finally received life-changing hearing aids after years of struggling, .

Sister Elizabeth Reyes just received new hearing aids after her friends recommended she get her ears checked out and can hear clearly for the first time in years.

WFSB says Sister Elizabeth is a Montessori School/St. Joseph School teacher in Bristol.

She received the gift of hearing on Friday from the Beltone Hearing Care Foundation.

The Beltone Hearing Care Foundation donates hearing instruments to those in need of hearing help who may otherwise be unable to access it. Both individuals and organizations are eligible to receive assistance from the Foundation through direct nominations by Beltone staff or network members.

“Beltone has always had the mission of helping the world hear better through our products and professional hearing care services,” said Beltone President Corrine Perritano. “This Foundation gives our members a new path to achieve this mission by helping deserving individuals enrich their quality of life.”

FOX 61 says for Sister Elizabeth, every word is crucial because she spends most of her time teaching children, from 3 to 5 years old.

“I’m looking forward to the school day, when I can see them and hear them.”

Belton in Bristol is located in Bristol Commons, 123 Farmington Avenue.
