The Gift of Life offers hope, encouragement, and support to parents of premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Why The Gift of Life?
Helping to Heal the Emotional and Financial Trauma that Results from Preterm Birth
Premature birth is more common than we'd like to think. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), preterm birth happens to 15 million babies a year. And that number is on the rise. After having a son born prematurely, Rosie Moore decided to found The Gift of Life. She created this non-profit organization as a way of giving back for all the love and support she received. And as an acknowledgement of the emotional, financial, and physical struggles of parents and preemies in the NICU. We appreciate your support.
