THE STORY:

By Jessica Medinger Nelson

For many years, the Medinger Family (back when we were just a party of 4) gathered together in Towson on Father's Day to run a fun 5K race. It was a great way to spend time together as a family and celebrate our dynamic dad. The race benefitted GMBC's NICU and we always delighted in seeing the "alumni" of the NICU riding in wagons, sitting up in strollers and walking/running with their families. We loved seeing the sweet babies (and big kids) and their joyful, grateful parents. We saw the hugs and tears of gratitude and joy but we didn't truly understand what a gift the GBMC NICU was at that time.

Flash forward to March 2016......quite unexpectedly Michael Gerald Medinger, the son of my brother, Jason, and and his wife, Kelly, was born at just 24 weeks, 6 days. Miracle of all miracles he was born at GBMC. After his dramatic entrance, he was rushed immediately to the NICU. Our family could not be any more grateful to God for all the many gifts and blessings since that day. We are especially grateful for this amazing hospital and all the NICU has done to support them both physically and emotionally. 

Today, Michael continues to fight and get stronger every day!  And we continue to be so grateful for all the wonderful support we have received.  And we want to make sure future kids like Michael can get the care they need.  So, if you are able, please consider supporting the GBMC NICU.  Please join us!

Go Team Miraculous MICHAEL!
