About the Foundation
Our Mission
Healing is an art, a combination of bold gestures and subtle nuances.
The latter come in many forms, but none are more important than the work we do to improve the quality of life for neonatal and pediatric patients and families involved in critical care situations. We exist to provide family-centered care in the NICU environment to make trying times as comfortable, complete, hopeful and peaceful as possible.
