Dogs for the Deaf
Oscar-winning actress and national spokesperson for closed captioning, Marlee Matlin, became deaf at 18 months old, but didn’t let her lack of hearing slow her down. She and her interpreter of 27 years, Jack Jason, join The Doctors to talk about life as a soccer mom to four kids, her number one show, Switched at Birth, and a non-profit organization called Dogs for the Deaf.
“I’m a soccer mom and you should see me carrying all the gear, all the foods, the picnic baskets, their cleats,” Marlee says. “I’m a soccer dork.”
“And working on Switched at Birth, it’s just a beautiful, a wonderful show with a deaf character who’s part of the cast. It shows how deaf people integrate themselves into society and I’m very proud to be a part of it.”
While Marlee works with several non-profit organizations, one that’s currently growing and in need of support is Dogs for the Deaf.
“It’s a non-profit that trains rescue dogs to become guide dogs. They help individuals who are unable to hear things, so they assist them in that arena,” she says.
Trainers rescue dogs from shelters and train them for four to six months before pairing them with a hearing-impaired owner. To learn more and donate to Dogs for the Deaf, visit www.dogsforthedeaf.org.
“I’m very blessed that dance has been a big part of my life,” Paula says. “The word ‘exercise’ and the word ‘diet,’ they’re not my favorite words. With dancing, it doesn’t feel like you’re exercising. There’s such a joy in your heart when you do it.”
But while decades of dancing and choreography have helped Paula maintain her fabulous figure, tedious movements and various injuries have taken a toll on her body.
“I put my body through tedious things and I dance through injuries,” Paula reveals. “You take your body for granted and all of a sudden it comes back to bite you and it affects your bones. I started losing bone density myself.”
