THE STORY:

Many of you know that Max and Joey came before they were fully cooked. 

Maxine was born seven weeks before her due date and Josephine came six weeks early. That is serious business. It meant weeks spent in the Beth Israel Deaconess Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It meant a team of doctors and nurses working around the clock to make sure the girls survived. It meant wires and heart rate and breathing monitors and alarms going off during diaper changes. It meant that our girls had the support of a group of brilliant nurses who took care of them night and day, doctors who watched their every breath, nutritionists who made sure they were getting what they needed to thrive, social workers who held our hands and kept us focused on the end goal, and a janitorial staff who made sure that no germs could get near our strong little ladies. 

In April Liz and I will run the 119th Boston Marathon to raise money for the BIDMC Department of Neonatology Newborn Services Fund. We run for families like ours. For parents who need their hands held. We run for all the good that Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has done and will do. Please consider supporting the hospital. And please support us on Marathon Monday - we're going to need it!

Here is some more information about where your donation is headed:

Newborn Services Fund

Donations to the Fund allow the Department of Neonatology to address clinical, training, and family-related needs that may otherwise not be addressed.  The Newborn Services Fund is used to:

·         Promote and support new and existing programs that provide educational and emotional support to families of high-risk newborns

·         Provide for the ongoing training and development of specialized clinical staff by supporting their attendance at professional conferences
