Project Preemie was born out of the love and support of Founders, Pam & Nicholas Frascos family and friends after a few years of gifting small care packages to the NICU. What started as a way to give back, quickly turned into something so much more. Offering connection and love, Project Preemie is here to help those going through the experience and recognize those special caregivers that help these miracles grow.
From founders Pam & Nicholas Frasco...
Project Preemie was officially started in April of 2018, but had been in the works for several years prior. After feeling very isolated during her first sons premature birth and NICU stay, Founder Pam Frasco was determined to find something or someone to connect with but was unable to find the support she needed. The Frascos had many family and friends who were there to lean on but none that had gone through the emotional experience of having a baby born prematurely. It was a very confusing time. A family friend gave Pam a journal during her stay and she clung to it for over 6 weeks taking notes and recording milestones. That journal would prove to be inspiration for and is a staple of our current care packages today.
