It's time for our 2012 Rescued by Love, Charity Event! There are some very simple ways you can be involved in bringing hope to sweet babies struggling to survive, AND their families. Our goal is to raise $10,000 and provide the following tangible needs for the Bryan NeoNatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the Greenville Hospital System.
- 1 - Sound Ear - $2000 - There's no barrier like the barrier of a Mother's womb to facilitate the neurological development of a baby. However, when a child is born early this barrier is gone making sound levels much more important.This instrument alerts visitors to the NICU, and nurses, of the room's noise level. For more information visit this link: http://www.noisemeters.com/product/soundear/neonatal.asp
- 1- IV Finder - $4500 - This is a "flashlight" of sorts that illuminates the skin so nurses and doctors can locate tiny veins more easily, with no risk of burning the sensitive skin of a preemie. For more information visit this link: http://www.accuvein.com/
- 5 - Breast Milk Warmers - $900 each - This is an advanced warmer that effectively warms frozen breast milk to the temperature that a baby would normally get from a Mother when nursing. Because of the conditions and size of most preemies nursing is not an option. This is the next, most effective, and safe way of delivering a Mother's breastmilk. This warmer is also waterless which reduces the risk of infections for these tiny miracles.
