Your support of this event will help CHKD purchase new patient care technology for CHKD’s neonatal intensive care unit, which provides the highest level of care available in this region to critically-ill newborns. Each year, more than 500 babies are admitted to CHKD’s NICU. Many have been born prematurely---some as much as 16 weeks before they are due---while others face life-threatening illnesses or birth defects. CHKD’s NICU babies need highly specialized equipment to help them survive, from temperature- and humidity-controlled incubators, to high-frequency ventilators, to minute versions of everyday items like blood pressure cuffs and diapers. Help us make sure the children in our community have the best chance for a healthy future.
