Our son, Will, was born at 28 weeks weighing 3 pounds 3 ounces. His first 55 days were spent in the NICU at Hemby Children's Hospital in Charlotte. I am on the advisory board of Pierce's Project and am participating in this fundraising effort in honor of our Will. He is now a happy and healthy 15 month old, but we will always look back on those first difficult days and are grateful for this organization that helped support, inform and care for us. We hope to raise money for this wonderful organization. Pierce's Project was founded in 2011 to support local families of premature or chronically ill infants before, during & after their NICU stay. Our mission is simple: to offer love and support to other families facing situations similar to ours. 100% of the proceeds go to help out local NICU families.
