“We certainly didn’t expect our daughter to arrive two-and-a-half months early, but the love and support from friends and family has helped us cope with the challenges. It was a pleasant surprise, however, to find a care package from your organization waiting for us at our daughter’s isolette. Your timing was perfect. One day my wife was cold and hungry. Waiting in the box was a blanket and granola bars. I got thirsty and didn’t want to leave my daughter. A juice box quenched the thirst. I can’t wait for our daughter to come home and complete the coloring book, or take photos with the disposable camera. Thanks for putting a smile on our faces and warming our hearts. Feel free to share this message with anyone you’d like. We’ll certainly share your mission with others.”

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
