“Suzy’s entrance into the world went from “fine” to very “not fine” in the matter of seconds. Instead of spending her first moments snuggling and basking in the bliss of becoming parents, we watched her being whisked away to the NICU. Her 27-day NICU stay was scary and stressful, but thankfully today she is healthy, happy, and thriving!
We are forever thankful for people and organizations who made those days a little easier. With the support that the Jackson Chance Foundation provides to NICU families, we never had to even think about accumulating parking fees, or how many times we came and went from the hospital. In a time when we had so much to worry about, it meant so much to have one less thing on that list of worries. We were able to be with Suzy every single day in the NICU. Though her earliest days didn’t look like we expected that they would, we cherish the precious time we were able to spend with our sweet girl.
In honor of Suzy’s birthday, we’d like to help pay it forward to make the NICU journey easier for other families too. Parking fees can easily cost hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars over the course of a NICU stay. Please consider donating to Jackson Chance to help provide some peace of mind to more NICU families.”
