The Gift of Life is a 501 (c)3 whose primary goal is to Support the Parents of Premature Infants. The goal is to assist them to regain back what they have lost during and after their time in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Studies have shown that parents of premature infants suffer from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. When parents of premature infants, according to the study, receive help, their stress levels decrease and they start to slowly ease into parenthood/married life. The Mayors of Orlando have agreed that more support is needed for our Orlando residents and surrounding cities.
We offer a range of services to assist the families of premature infants who are in the NICU, or who have recently been released from it. Parents of preemies receive a variety of resources and emotional support from us online, by telephone, and in person. It is our aim to be a reliable source of helpful information on the topics that caretakers of preemies want to learn more about. The community events we hold in the Orlando, FL area not only help us raise funds to keep our organization going, but it gives all in the preemie community a chance to celebrate life, make new friends, and network.

The Gift of Life's Advisory Board:
The Gift of Life - Because life is a gift we treasure each moment.
As parents of a premature baby ourselves, we formed The Gift of Life to offer hope, encouragement and support to parents of premature babies and neonatal intensive care units. Our purpose is to provide support to parents and their premature babies.

The sense of loneliness felt while with her baby in the NICU is one of the main reasons Rosie Moore founded The Gift of Life. Each year around Christmas time, our team visits the NICUs in Orlando to hand out love bears and other gifts.
The Gift of Life provides peer-to-peer preemie mentors who supports the parents and families of preemies both during and after the baby’s NICU stay. These volunteers provide both email and phone support.
NICU Care Packages
When the uncertain state of your fragile baby’s health is at the forefront of your attention, it’s easy to let the small-but-important necessities of life go unaddressed. The Gift of Life provides care packages to families during and after the NICU stay to help ensure they have the supplies they need.
