Unfortunately, this new technology came with a hefty price tag - one that Sarah couldn't afford. With a cost of $30,000 per ear, she was going to have a hard enough time simply buying one.
She and her husband brainstormed how to make this happen, but they just couldn't figure out how to budget for it. Family and friends knew their predicament, but they were caught off guard by a loved one's gesture.
Sarah's mother-in-law stepped in with an offer too good to refuse. She told Sarah that she would be willing to help purchase one.
