You can help us expand our parking program to Northwestern Prentice Women’s Hospital…
Your Donation Doubles this April
At the Jackson Chance Foundation, it is our mission to ensure that every NICU baby receives their basic human right – advocacy, support, and human touch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We need your help to make this happen, and right now, your donation has never been more important.
During the month of April our goal is to raise $25,000, and thanks to a generous donor, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar. If we can collectively raise $50,000, our ambition of expanding to Northwestern Prentice Women’s Hospital will be fulfilled! This will allow us to help more than 1,500 babies annually.
The Jackson Chance Foundation provides so much more than a parking pass – it provides a critical benefit for babies in the NICU. Medical studies have proven that physical touch has equal benefits to medical care for premature and ill babies. By removing the financial burden of parking fees for families, we make sure that this basic human right isn’t taken away.
Alex & Diego were born at Prentice Women’s Hospital in November 2016, at just 27 weeks, weighing in at just over 2lbs. During their 72-day NICU stay, their parents were at their bedsides every day – recognizing signs of need, advocating for their babies, monitoring & participating in their care. They noticed nuances that only a parent could see. Alex and Diego came home 18 days before their due date, and the doctors attributed this joyous occasion to the boys having consistent human touch, advocacy and unwavering parental support. Alex & Diego were fortunate, but many NICU babies spend the majority of their hospital stay alone. Your donation can help change that. Read more about Alex & Diego’s story.
Donate before April 30th and your contribution will not only be doubled – you’ll be making a meaningful difference for more babies in the NICU. Every dollar counts.
