Huck's NICU Family

$1,260 of $1,600 goal

Raised by 25 people in 20 months
It is hard to believe Huckleberry Hendry was born 8 months ago on May 17, 2016 at 2lb 14oz. Today, he weighs over 18lb, breastfed, rolling over and still amazing us every single day! In celebration of his 1 year birthday shortly arriving, I created this account.

As a family that spent the first 83 days of our son's life in the NICU, we know how stressful it is. We spent thousands of extra dollars just in commuting, parking, food, house guest to care for our older son... We were also very lucky that our sister set up a Go Fund Me for Huck to help with those costs.

With that being said, we wanted to set up this account to buy a 1 Week Parking Pass for each of the 80 families at the NICU. They cost $20 each. I know it doesn't seem like much, but if I received this gift, it would lift my spirits. Just to know people are out there, thinking of you and your little baby really helps. Thank you all so much for your support through Huckleberry's journey. It's time to pay it forward :)

Thank you!
Love, The Hendry Family

And the passes were delivered today!!!!

Today, I met with the NICU Social Worker and we got all the passes to the NICU Families! Thank YOU for your donation and support. Having our Huckleberry in the NICU for 83 days was a lot to handle. I'm sure these families will appreciate this little gift. ❤️
What perfect timing... Huck turns 1 on May 17th!
A little note we included with each pass ❤️

Huckleberry had is 9 month Check up with the Neonatal Dr. and she had nothing but great news to say! He is hitting most milestones for a Full Term 9 month old baby. Not bad for a baby that should only be 6 months old!
Also, there are about 40 families currently in the NICU and with the money we raised, we will be able to donate a 2 week parking pass for each NICU Family! Huck's Doctor was incredibly touched by our gesture and said the families will be as well. (We would be!!!)
So, THANK YOU so very much for helping us achieve our goal. We are very excited to get everything together and have the passes to the NICU by May to celebrate Huck's 1 year birthday.
