"As a Social Worker, having the Jack & Abby Neonatal Foundation as a resource means that I can offer practical help to families whose world has been turned upside down. Suddenly, a sick newborn in the family means that basic needs like food, gas and baby supplies become the most important things and yet the most difficult to get. The ability to reach out to a foundation created by parents who have truly been there and provide any small bit relief from the stress of the NICU experience lends peace of mind to both families and staff - and that is priceless."
