In 2018, 1 in 10 babies was born premature in the United States. Most of these babies are immediately sent to the NICU. For those, like me, who have experienced the NICU, you know how scary and stressful it can be. You also know how much even the smallest help, in any form, means during this difficult time.
We have had 43 premature babies, three of which spent time in the NICU. March of Dimes has been there every time.
March of Dimes NICU family support program offers core curriculum education classes, social support, events, meals, and bedside education to help families through this difficult time. This program is only possible through the generosity of individuals, like yourself.
While preparing for this holiday season with your loved ones, I implore you to consider donating to this wonderful program by visiting: https://www.marchforbabies.org/HeatherNW87
You can make a difference and help bring joy to families during their darkest moments.
