As you all know, our son, Pierce was born at 23 weeks and spent 118 days in the NICU at Levine Children's. His prematurity left a lasting mark on his life and is something that follows him daily. We know first hand the trauma a lengthy NICU stay can bring.
Because of this, our family created Pierce's Project (www.piercesproject.com) to support other families facing a similar NICU stay. Today, Pierce's Project operates with a 13 person, volunteer board and serves NICU families in and around Charlotte, NC. We offer a variety of support services, including care packages, parking passes, support meals, NICU keepsake photos and free professional counseling services.
We would love for you to mark your calendar for our upcoming fundraiser, Premature Oktoberfest to be held on October 19th (visit www.prematureoktoberfest.com for tickets and more info), but if you're not able to make it, we'd love to invite you to join us in our family's personal goal of supporting one NICU family (valued at $1200).
Thank you so much for considering supporting a cause so near and dear to our hearts.
Lindsay, Nik, Pierce and Audrey Franks
