“Thank so very much for the care package. We were so grateful to know that not only are there people out there supporting us in our situation, but that they know what we’re going through and just how hard it is. While we’ve had great support from family and friends, they never did seem to grasp the true hardship of watching your tiny baby struggle to live. Your baby achieves all these wonderful goals, but he’ll have setbacks too. Just when you think things are looking up, a breathing or feeding issue becomes severe. It was extremely comforting to know that we weren’t the only family going through this, and that our NICU wasn’t the only NICU going through this. Support is priceless, and that’s exactly what you provided.”

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
