THE STORY:

Hello Family and Friends,

In Boston the spring thaw has begun!   Throughout this very long snowywinter, I have been training for my 4th Boston marathon.  With just 4 weeks to go it's time to ask for your support in raising funds for the Brigham and Women’s NICU. 

As many of you know our son Evan blasted into this world prematurely at 27 weeks and the NICU became our home for 3 1/2 months.  We were thrust into parenting in the NICU environmentwhere lights, beeps, monitors, intubations and life threatening situationsare the norm with no privacy and no quiet blissful nights of snuggling with the  newborn.  Eleven years have gone since our upclose encounter in this environment and the BWH NICU is no longer a state of the art facility; your help can change that situation.  

Today we know more about what helps preemies and their families get through a difficult start. In the new NICU – there will be quiet space for families to be with their baby's.  It tore my heart to leave Evan each day because there was no room for parents to sleep over.  They use to say preemie development was mostly about physical growth and catching up.  Today we know more about the emotional attachment and how critical it is for preemies to be held and touched to feel safe .  Your support will create this and so much more for preemies and their family whose home is the BWH NICU. 

Running for the BWH NICU renews my faith and calms my soul that preemie's catching  up happens in many ways.  Please donate large or small – help create a NICU home that makes a lifelong difference in so many lives.

Thank you !

With loving gratefulness,  Meg

Meg, this is near and dear to our heart as our son Justin came a month early and spent his first day in NICU and the first child we had in New York, Jennifer spent her life of five days in a NICU. I can't tell you how compassionate the nurses and our doctors were to our situation and to Jennifer, born at 1 pound 8 ounces! This is in memory of Jennifer Ann Strom and in tribute to the nurses and doctors at the hospital in New York, and Iowa City. 3 years ago
