Welcome to Super Justin's Fundraising Page - Lets Make Miracles Happen!
Dear Family and Friends,
Our Little Miracle, Justin was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, weighing only 1 lb. 3oz. Needless to say we were in complete state of shock, fear and despair. However, from day one, all the doctors, nurses and NICU staff embraced us with their care and support. We were told that the journey would consist of many ups and downs. Truer words were never spoken. During our very long 120 day stay in NICU, our super Justin overcame chronic lung disease, heart surgery, multiple infections, countless number of blood transfusions, daily struggles with breathing, feedings and the list goes on. We were counting and celebrating every ounce Justin gained and every decrease in oxygen level, and how insanely happy we were when we finally heard Justin cry! Our St. Barnabas NICU family stood by our side and held our hand thru it all!
Thanks to our incredible Doctors and Nurses, aka Miracle Workers, today Justin is a happy, healthy and energetic kindergartener! And we are just doing our small part to continue to let miracles like Justin happen!
Each year, over 1,200 infants begin their lives in the NICU at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, with many weighing just over one pound. To give these little miracles fare chance in life, our family and hundreds of other families realize that a need exists to raise money for the NICU to help advance medical technology, and create the best possible medical and healing environment for babies and their parents. Thus, thousands of folks have come together to participate in Miracle Walk over the past ten years, and over $3 million has been raised so far! The money from Miracle Walk has enabled the NICU to purchase several of the most technologically advanced incubators for intensely ill infants. Miracle Walk has also provided the NICU with its Continuous Blood Gas Monitoring System, which allows for constant monitoring of critical blood gas levels while reducing the need for blood sampling.
We would like to ask you to participate as a Miracle Walk sponsor and donate to our team “Super Justin” to help this worthy cause and continue making miracles happen.
