Graham’s Foundation empowers parents of premature babies through support, advocacy and research to improve outcomes for their preemies and themselves.
We deliver on our purpose through:
Support for today…designed specifically for the long-term needs of preemies and their parents. In addition to our NICU, transition home, and remembrance care package programs, we have 20 trained parent mentors available 24/7 via email, phone, and text and the market-leading app, MyPreemie. Whenever possible, the support we offer is emotional, intellectual, and practical.
In 2014, we provided peer to peer mentorship to over 100 families and facilitated a highly engaged online community made up of over 25,000 parents and supporters in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, NZ, Ireland, South Africa, India, and Mexico. More than 50,000 people used the resources on the Graham’s Foundation website.
Advocacy for tomorrow…that connects organizations, medical professionals, and brands with thousands of preemie parent voices to impact positive change for preemies and their families. Through our active social media communities, we are able to quickly collect self-reported data from parents about their experiences in the NICU and beyond, their level of engagement in their preemies’ care, the support they received, and the partnerships they were able to foster, as well as what they need and want in the hospital and at home.
Research for the future…representing the priorities and needs of preemies and their families. Our aim is to help shape and support breakthroughs through strategic partnerships focused not only on preemie outcomes, but also family-cohesive care in the NICU and beyond. We represent the needs of preemie parents at conferences around the world attended by neonatologists, neonatal nurses, industry, academics and other professionals who work closely with preemies and their families.
Recognition of the courage and commitment parents of preemies demonstrate as they care for and advoc
