This was SUCH a fun night! We're thankful to CBWest for honoring cancer warriors in our community!Great time tonight watching CB West Football with another big win!! 28-0 over Tennent! Thank you to everyone who brought toys for Dominic’s Toy Chest❤️ Ciarlo proudly threw the coin toss before the game! He was glad to be out there with his friend Bennett (BennettStrong Foundation)❤️ My favorite part of the night was seeing many kids wearing their go gold shirts with Dominic’s name on them❤️💔❤️ 3 years ago the student section was chanting Dominic’s name in their Buck/Minion shirts while Dominic watched from a hospital bed... In December he will have been gone for 3 years💔 I’m thankful that his school and the schools he would’ve attended continue to honor him and help raise awareness about childhood cancer❤️ This has been a rough month for me. I’m tired and I need to get Ciarlo to bed for another busy day tomorrow. Share love with people that mean the most to you. Tomorrow isn’t promised. I wasn’t a cancer mom until I was... it can happen to ANYONE💔 #PrayForDominic🎈💩🎈🎗#CancerSUCKS🎗 #HeShouldBeHere🎗 #BuckStrong🎗#BennettStrong🎗#GoGold🎗 ... See MoreSee Less

This picture popped in my newsfeed on my personal account, and my heart swelled with the amount of love this little guy shares with his father. It's a sweet reminder that, no matter what is going on in the NICU, these are the moments we work for and live for. 💜💜 ... See MoreSee Less
This was posted by a couple we met at our gala last year. I found myself asking Daria and her husband 'why haven't we been friends forever?!' We had just finished listening to our amazing Keynote speaker and found ourselves at the bar, saturated with feelings. We bonded over our 25 weekers, micro-prematurity, and the trauma that comes with experiencing the NICU. It's community like this makes events like our gala so special! We needed their energy and their friendship! ... See MoreSee Less

It's #WorldPrematurityDay2019 . Prematurity is the leading cause of infant death and lifelong disability (seizures, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, the list seems endless).
We've included the face of our warrior, Bennett. He's 10 days old in this picture. We didn't know it, but he was also gravely ill. We almost lost him a mere 8 hours later.
We talk about our preemies being warriors and showing the strength of a lifetime in a single breath. What we don't talk about: post-traumatic stress, lifelong disabilities, death, and the trauma surrounding that child's birth. Let's acknowledge the strength these babies possess and provide for those whose lives will forever be navigating disabilities related to their early arrival.
Join us, on 2/29/20 as we continue our project supporting patients and families in the NICU. ... See MoreSee Less
