Please help me support the NICU at Akron Children's Hospital!

Sam and I delivered Amelia on January 26, 2006. We were excited to meet our new baby. She was full term (10 days late) and we had a very long delivery. When she arrived, she was grey and lifeless. Our hearts stopped. Amelia was transported to Akron Children’s Hospital’s Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit. She was in Respiratory Distress; she had multi organ failure, Renal Vein Thrombosis & Tachycardia to start. She was an enigma for the staff and they just kept her stabilized while they ran test after test. She had so many wires and IV’s that she at times had to have two nurses to keep track of everything they were doing for our baby girl. They took such amazing care of not only Amelia, but also of Sam and I. After two weeks of being in a coma like state and only getting tablespoons of vitamins to eat, tons of genetic testing…Amelia began to heal herself. She came off the respirator, her organs started to bounce back and we finally got to hold her. Amelia spent her first 26 days in the NICU. Although we would have preferred a different outcome, we knew immediately we were in the right place. We received world-class care and most of all we brought home a healthy baby girl. Amelia’s only ongoing care is for her Renal Vein Thrombosis. Sam and I started Walk for Babies as grateful parents who wanted to give back. We committed to raising $1,000,000 for the NICU. Over the last 11 years we have raised $800,000. We want to help the future families get the extraordinary care that we also got. I hope you will support us in our efforts.
