Jackson Chance Foundations wants to say “thank you” to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses everywhere and honor the super-human work they do for patients and families every day and night. NICU nurses are not only charged with caring for a baby’s health but they ensure families are able to weather the stress and emotional turmoil of having a baby in the hospital or a loss. These healthcare professionals are the unsung heroes of the NICU or as we like to call them “family”. To recognize these amazing humans we are honoring them for their courage, compassion, and dedication to improving outcomes for these special babies and their families.
