Jesse & The Rippers
Help us support Saint Barnabas Medical Center and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit by donating today!
When Jesse was born 14 weeks early in 2015, we had no idea what to expect. It was a whole new world, one we never gave much thought to, let alone knew we'd become a part of one day. Weighing a tiny 2lbs 2oz, Jesse was born prematurely at 25 weeks. He endured so much in his first year of life and is so much stronger because of that. He is now 2.5 years old but we will never forget the 66 days he spent in his first home, the SBMC NICU. Jesse received excellent medical care by his team of doctors and nurses and without them, he would not be here today.
We walk to give back to the NICU, the place that gave us our greatest gift, our son.
Miracles happen every day. The 17th Annual Miracle Walk is a wonderful family fun-filled day, which raises funds in support of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Saint Barnabas Medical Center
As a level III Regional Perinatal Center, the NICU offers the latest treatments and modalities in the field to provide the most advanced care for more than 1,100 premature and ill newborns each year. Our NICU has one of the best infant survival rates among neonatal intensive care units in the nation.
On behalf of the entire NICU family and the 1,100 babies we care for annually, I hope you can support me and my team for this year's walk. Your commitment and generosity help to guarantee a strong future for the NICU and Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
You can walk with me on October 8th or donate to my team. Your support will matter to so many people. Please join me today!
