Parents of Preemies Day – May 5, 2019

sponsoring parents of preemies day 2

You have been there for your preemie since they were born. You’ve prayed for them. Cried over them. Suffered and celebrated along with them, day in and day out.

Whether your baby is still in the NICU, your preemie is headed for college, or you had to say goodbye far too soon, Parents of Preemies Day was created for you. Every year we honor the strength and resilience of parents of preemies like you, and this year we hope you’ll join us.

Be a part of Parents of Preemies Day on the first Sunday in May by:

POSTING your prematurity story in our Facebook group

Each year, 13 million babies are born prematurely to parents who never expected their birth stories to be so challenging. Parents of Preemies Day is a global day to recognize the courage and commitment it takes to stay strong and resilient when a premature birth turns a family’s world upside down.

All year long, join us on Facebook and celebrate being a parent of a preemie in the NICU and beyond!

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder

Graham’s Foundation
