Walk for Babies

Abby & Her Guardian Angel Brady

On January 3, 2014 my twins, Abby & Brady, were born at 25 weeks. They were not due until April 14th. Brady weighed 2 lbs 3 oz and Abby weighed 2 lb 1 oz. They were 13 inches long.


Brady was in the NICU for 96 days before he passed away. He struggled with sepsis and breathing. He was never able to get off of the ventilator. 



Abby was in the NICU for 105 days, 59 of those being on a ventilator. She is currently a happy, healthy 5 year old. She is getting ready to start Kindergarten in the fall and is a great big sister to her 3 year old sister, Alaina.



We would not be where we are today without Akron Children's NICU. They allowed us to have 96 unforgettable moments with our son, Brady. They are the reason that Abby is here today. I have nothing but great things to say about the NICU and I am eternally grateful for the amazing care that was provided to the twins. 


This is our 6th year participating at the walk for babies. Last year we were able to exceed our goal and raised over $3,000! This allowed us sponser 2 cameras that are placed in the isolette so that families can see their baby when they are unable to be bedside. This year they are continuing to raise money for additional of the cameras. I would love to be able to sponser another one!

 Please consider making a donation to my team, Abby & Her Guardian Angel Brady. 100% of the money rasied goes directly to the NICU. Better yet, if you are free on Sunday October 6th I'd love to have you join team Abby & Her Guardian Angel Brady. This event is family friendly. Gates open at 9am, there are stands with different activities for kids to do and then a 1 mile walk that starts at 10am. 

 

Thank you in advance for your support!
