Niko's Medical Bills

Niko was born January 8th, 2018. He was born at 27 weeks gestation due to a complete uterine rupture. He was barely two pounds in weight and only 14 inches in length. Niko has battled multiple issues that surround being born so premature. It seems that every time Niko gets a handle on one issue, another pops up. Niko has been in the NICU at Broward General Hospital since birth. Niko's parents, Carmen and Franco, have already used up most of their shared time off from work in order to be by his side.

While there is no guarantee as to when Niko will come home, Niko's family wants to be ready for when he does. Your generous contribution will go towards helping both Carmen and Franco be able to afford the much needed time off to bond with and care for Niko as they begin their venture as a family at home.

We are hoping to raise $15,000 over the next 60 days. Thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion.
