Staff report

At the luncheon, Dr. Edward O'Neill, a neonatologist, and Dr. Blair Tolar, an obstetrician-gynecologist, shared information about the NICU's impact on the community, according to a press release sent by Baptist Health Paducah on Friday.

Reidland Middle School teacher Stephanie Rathgeber, a parent of twin daughters who spent six weeks at the NICU, also spoke at the event. According to the release, Rathgeber said she hoped her children would never to have to repeat their NICU stay, but she and her family look back with joy on their time there.

"There is a joy in seeing how far your children have come and how strong they are, no matter their size," Rathgeber said. "There is joy in knowing that there are hardworking and caring professionals that put their whole hearts into their work and that they are right here in our backyard."

The luncheon also included a fashion show by Nola's Boutique, emceed by Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce President Sandra Wilson and Mazzone Communications President Darlene Mazzone.
