Christmas at the NICU

With the help of God, Children's Hospital Colorado saved our daughter's life. We literally experienced a little bit of heaven on earth at this amazing place we like to call "Home Sweet Home". Our family will forever want to pay it forward, and this Christmas we hope to do just that.


On December 25th, 2013, many families will be on their knees begging God to spare their child's life, they will be in complete shock and depression in discovering their child's prognosis, or they will see their little baby earn their wings in heaven. The NICU is the happiest and darkest place we have ever been a part of. God seems hidden at times. However, this Christmas we hope to brighten lives.


Thomas, Heather, and I have everything we could ever want. We have a loving God, we have each other, and we have our daughter! God spared our daughter's life and that's all we CONTINUE to ask for!

Our wish this Christmas is to feed the medical staff at Children's Hospital & give a gift to each family in the NICU. We are so beyond grateful and humbled by the constant questions of, "What does Heather need? Does she need clothes, books, toys? What can I buy her?" Thank you for your generosity for our daughter, but she has so much and so do we. If you feel inclined to give, please give in Heather's honor to the people that were by her side twenty four hours a day, seven days a week for three months and five days. We want them to feel uplifted, motivated, and well-nourished on Christmas day when they are away from their own families to try and save others. We will provide a healthy, delicious lunch to all the medical workers, and a gift for all the NICU families.
Thank you for your support in helping us make this Christmas the very best yet. Any extra or unused funds will be used to purchase restaurant & cafeteria gift cards as an additional gift to the families in the NICU.


Merry Christmas!
