April 19, 2012 -  Actress Marlee Matlin, who is deaf,  visited the NICU at Baptist Memorial Hospital on Thursday. She had a chance to meet Shannon McWaters of Collierville and her son, Billy, who was born premature.  Baptist brought Marlee Matlin to Memphis, as a speaker,  as part of their centennial celebration. Matlin understands first-hand what many of our NICU babies are facing-overcoming a lifetime of health obstacles, such as deafness. She spoke later, saying that she is a living proof that dreams do come true. (  By Karen Pulfer Focht/ The Commercial Appeal)
