Giving transplant patients hope

Young Memphis transplant patients got an extra dose of hope this week with a visit from two people who have been down that road.  Stephen Shanks, from Springdale, Arkansas, received a liver transplant last year in Memphis and his daughter saw a need that went far beyond their family.

This week they gave young patients their book, and their bear: Carson, the transplant bear.
