THE STORY:

As some of you may know, Jonah and Sloane entered the world much earlier then we hoped for at 29 weeks.  They were 2 1/2 lbs each and spent 2 months in the NICU.  I am fortunate that both of them are happy and healthy 5 1/2 year olds now, but at the time we didn't know what their future would be like.  I promised myself when I took home my 2 babies that I would give back somwhow to families who have to live through the traumatic experience I had by improving their situation somehow in the NICU. That is why I decided to join the Board of Jackson Chance Foundation. 

Jackson Chance Foundation's (JCF) mission is to enrich the lives of families with babies in the NICU by allowing them to spend more time with their baby. JCF created the NICU Transportation Program to partner with hospitals and alleviate the transportation expenses of all families while their child is in the NICU by providing parking and CTA/Metra vouchers. The programs are fully funded by JCF. Currently, the foundation's program benefits the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
