As a former 3 pound 12 ounce premie who has been blessed with a wonderful life in part because of the hard work of the doctors and nurses in the NICU at UCSF Moffet Hospital back in 1981, NICU care and support is certainly near and dear to my heart. Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal for this great cause.
Since 2009, the Aly & Izy Foundation [registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization] has been dedicated to providing families of premature or critically ill infants requiring treatment in the Special Care Nursery in the Sacramento and surrounding areas, a resting place for families, conveniently located on hospital grounds. The RV 4 Preemies program provides an RV to families in need free of charge.
The RV for Preemies helps in the following ways:
To reduce the financial hardships stowed upon families by extensive travel to and from the hospital (Hotels/Motel cost, fuel etc.)
Provide families a place to rest and relax during their stressful, emotional and physically draining time
Allows families to be close to their premature or critically ill newborns 24 hours a day.
Having these RV's on hospital grounds at a minimal to no cost to the families is one less thing for them to worry about, during their time of need.
The Foundation also provides the Special Care Nursery with items such as hats, booties, blankets, scent dolls, memory boxes and isolette covers.
