Lakewood recipients of MMC’s NICU encourage community to show support

mmc monmouth tlsAbout a year ago, our daughter was born at Monmouth Medical Center. Severely premature, and with a host of complications, she was whisked away to the NICU that would be her home for the next four months. There are no words to describe the incredibly devoted care that she got from the entire staff there, nor can we properly express our gratitude for the concern they showed for our wellbeing during the countless hours we spent at her cribside. Never was an eyelash batted even at the most odd-sounding requirements of a Shabbos or a three-day Yom Tov. Suffice it to say that they filled difficult requests with ease, and what seems impossible is just par for the daily course in the NICU.

This Sunday, September 18, the NICU will be holding its major annual event, Big Steps for Little Feet at 10 am on the Long Branch boardwalk near Rooney’s. With a sponsored walk to benefit the NICU’s programs, carnival booths and rides for the kids, it is more than just a fundraiser: it is a chance for the community to publicly show support for this vital institution and the selfless doctors, nurses and therapists who are its lifeblood. Our Lakewood community is well-represented among the patients of the NICU, and we are direct beneficiaries of the great work they do. We will also be conspicuous at this event, whether by our presence or our absence. Please try to attend and show your support for Monmouth Medical Center’s NICU.
