our mission: PROJECT PREEMIE IS DEDICATED TO SUPPORTING FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN IN THE NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT AND THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WHO CARE FOR THEM.
WE want to connect with nicu parents and OFFER RESOURCES to SUPPORT THEM during THEIR journey both in the hospital and beyond. we recognize THE amazing MEDICAL TEAMS THAT CARE FOR THEse miracles and celebrate them.
