Today is National Prematurity Awareness Day! Each year 1 in 8 babies in the US are born too soon. These babies have such a difficult start in life, that is the ones who survive. In honor of National Prematurity Awareness Day we’re kicking off our Holiday Raffle. There are multiple prizes which means multiple winners! We’ll also have a few prizes to give away randomly throughout the raffle, so get your tickets early!
The winners will be chosen by Random.org and a screenshot posted here.
Farmers Insurance has partnered with Discovery Health Channel and the March of Dimes to present “NICU,” a new television series that follows the experiences of babies fighting for their lives in a newborn intensive care unit. This 10-episode docu-drama series goes behind the scenes of top national neonatal intensive care (NICU) units, showing the day-to-day care required to sustain the smallest of lives. NICU follows real families as they experience the rollercoaster of emotions that come with having a premature baby and features doctors and nurses from leading hospitals in Baltimore, San Diego and Cleveland, as they work around the clock to ensure the survival of their tiny patients.
“NICU” premieres at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) Thursday, July 15, on Discovery Health Channel. The series follows real families as they experience the roller coaster of emotions that come with having a baby born too soon or with other complications. The series is being presented in partnership with the March of Dimes, whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. During the broadcast, viewers can use their mobile devices to text the word “hero” to 20222 to donate $5 to the March of Dimes.

By now, anyone who follows the Duggar Family is aware that their 19th child was born recently. Little Josie Duggar was born on December 10, 2009 at just 25 weeks gestation and weighing only 1 lb 6 oz. Josie was recently discharged from the NICU, only to be readmitted days later. Much of Josie’s struggles have aired on the Duggars show 19 Kids and Counting. This is bringing awareness to the issues of prematurity and for that, we thank the Duggar family. Love them or not, they are raising prematurity awareness and awareness is key!
Michelle Duggar shares a very special moment of being a preemie parent……holding Josie for the very first time
Thank you to everyone who donated! Thanks to you, we’re getting closer to our goal, and helping babies!
The lucky winner is: A King, Congratulations! You’ve got some shopping to do!
