    "The NICU saved me, now I can save others."

  • Destiny Anderson - NICU

    When Donna Anderson gave birth to Destiny in 1996, she never imagined her daughter's first days of life would be spent attached to wires, tubes and other equipment.

    Thankfully, Destiny grew quickly and went home a healthy infant. She is now a high school junior who looks forward to college.

    Destiny also spends her summers working as a lifeguard, protecting and rescuing swimmers.



  • If the NICU has touched your life, or the life of someone you know, please consider enrolling in the Next Generation Campaign's Little Footprints Club and help babies in need for years to come.
