To close out May, NEC Awareness Month, we are highlighting the extraordinary story about Addison, who was born with an abdominal birth defect and is a two-time survivor of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a life-threatening intestinal disease.

Life in the NICU hangs in the balance. So much can go wrong. Preterm and fragile infants are extremely vulnerable to developing respiratory distress, hearing and vision deficits and cardiovascular, neurological and gastrointestinal complications.

Today, April 19, 2024, is Hannah’s first birthday and a miraculous milestone. A year ago, Hannah was born with a terminal brain condition called hydranencephaly. She left the hospital on hospice and was placed with her adoptive family three weeks later.

Dallas mom and breathwork facilitator, Shelsea is currently donating her extra breastmilk after her premature twins, Cielo and Sol, spent five months in the NICU.

Every breastfeeding/pumping and donation journey looks different. Donor mom Julie shares her story.
