THE STORY:

On January 10, 2016 at 27 weeks 3 days gestation, our twins, Jace and Eliana Gorman made their way into our world. Jace weighed just 2 pounds 11 ounces and his twin sister 2 pounds 8 ounces. They had a fight from the start but they would not fight alone. They had the doctors and nurses in the NICU there by their side fighting with and for them. They were Jace and Eliana's family and OUR family, taking care of them, with love, when we could not be there. Taking care of them AND us, with love, when we were there.

Jace lost his fight after battling NEC on February 2, 2016. He will forever be Eliana's angel, our angel, and the angel of all of our heroes who work in the NICU at GBMC.

From January 10 on we knew all we wanted to do was to give back. This is our first step in doing that. To raise money for the GBMC NICU who took care of our twins, took care of our hearts, wiped our tears; who fight for premature babies and all babies that have to start life in the NICU.

This is our second year participating and we would love to raise more than we did last year - please consider donating to the NICU!

GBMC FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Josiah arrived in GBMC's NICU at 25 weeks, weighing just 1 pound, 7 ounces. He had many ups and downs during his stay, but mom, Haidy, stayed positive.

"I didn't know about this world. I didn’t even know this unit existed," she said. But now that she has had to use it, she is incredibly grateful to the staff who explain everything to her, take care of her child when she isn't there.

And for the nurses in the NICU, it is just as rewarding for them to be able to touch families lives on a daily basis. They recognize the importance of what they bring to each family's experience.

Josiah is one of more than approximately 400 babies that come through GBMC's NICU each year. Help support the start of their lives at our 29th annual Father's Day 5K.

With 12 rooms in the NICU, there is always equipment that needs updating, new technologies to incorporate and resources critical for these more fragile babies, who require 24/7 care. Your support can help us provide these resources.
