As September is NICU Awareness month, to celebrate, the Del Sol Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) wanted to do something special for the families and babies.
This week they held a “graduation ceremony” for the NICU babies who get to go home and graduate out of the NICU.
NICU Awareness Month dates back to 2014, when founding organization Project Sweet Peas joined other professional and parent organizations to raise awareness to the challenges faced in the NICU.
“We heartened the voices of hundreds of NICU families as they shared their stories and supported efforts to support NICU’s across the country,” Project Project Sweet Peas officials shared on their website.
