Maggies Milk

Maggie was born premature at 29/wks.  She spent 3months & 1 Day in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Women & Infants Hospital.  She had severe brain trama due to lack of oxegen at birth.  She also lacked a swallow reflex & bowel sounds, but mom pumped breast milk as much as she could, but it eventualy stopped at around 2 months.  Now Maggie receives her Breast Milk from a bank at a cost of $5000.00/mnth.  This milk is pasturised and tested to ensure the sick babies that get it will not be at risk for infection.  This is also very important as the stem cells in the milk can assist in the brains healing & milanation.  My goal is to raise enough money that she can continue to receive this milk until she turns 1 at which point she will have to be switched to a formula as she is fed via feeding tube.  Thank you for your generosity
