NICU Baskets in Memory of Westley

Michael and I are raising money for NICU care packages for the Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Having a child in the NICU is tough! It is scary, lonely, stressful, draining and just downright hard. Some babies spend months in the NICU and in turn their parents are there daily watching them go through the ups and downs and cherishing the day they get to take them home. 

We want to make care packages for families in the NICU to help make their experience just a little bit easier. The care packages will include Preemie Baby Books, preemie clothes, coffee gift cards, snacks, and much much more. The packages will be specific for families with preemies and will be delivered on January 11 to honor our son Westley who spent every day of his life in the NICU with some pretty incredible nurses. 

Any amount you can donate is very much appreciated. 

Thank you!
