Our Vision, Mission, Values and History

Our vision is a world where no parent goes through the experience of prematurity alone.

Our mission is to inform and guide parents of preemies so that they may confidently navigate the journey of prematurity.

Our Values are:

Financial and Operational Transparency – sharing the sources of our funding and how we spend those funds to support our mission 

Equitabe and Inclusive Programs – consistently measuring the quality of our support and striving to provide support that is equitable and inclusive 

Environmentally Sensitive – we operate with a sensitivity to how we impact the environment

Graham’s Story

When I got the news from the doctor that our twins had to be delivered immediately, nearly 15 weeks premature, I had no idea what the future held, but I made up my mind that I would use this journey, no matter the outcome, to make a difference, somehow, some way. On Thanksgiving day, November 23, 2006, via emergency c-section, Reece and Graham were delivered at 25 weeks and 3 days gestational age.

I spent day and night at the NICU. Graham had an incredibly difficult journey.  My intuition was that his time with us during this lifetime would be brief. Graham was with us for only 45 days and I am eternally grateful for every moment.

Family, friends and NICU staff joined to celebrate Graham’s life.  Having them there meant the world to me.  

While Graham isn’t with us today in body he will be with me forever in spirit.

Life’s true measure is not the days lived but the lives touched.
