What? I'm a toddler now?
July 16, 2017

It has been almost 2 years since I was released from Levine children's hospital, and I have to say that life is a lot easier than it used to  See more
Stefan Koenig

THE STORY:

Hi I'm Finn and I was born as a 1lb 10oz micro preemie at 24.6 weeks in March 2015. I fought 113 days in the NICU of Levine's Children Hospital and there is a lot to tell you about it. My parents were pretty devastated about my early exit and absolutely not prepared for my stay in the NICU. There was very little hope until someone delivered a little bag to their hospital room and ultimately gave my parents the hope that we would all leave the hospital together. You wonder who's bag that was? It was a information package from Pierces Project. That package showed them that there is light at the end of the tunnel. From there we started our journey to discharge, and it wasn't always a smooth ride since preemies are notoriously bad drivers. During that time we met some very special people; words cannot express the gratitude we feel for them. It was Pierces Project, the doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and other preemie parents who helped us through the tough times. The NICU is not a happy place but you can have a happy ending and the support we received played a big part in reaching that end. I hope I'm able to raise a little bit of money so that other preemies and their parents get the same support as I did. Thank you all for everything
