2013 Compassionate Care Awards Celebration
On April 5, 2013, we were proud to honor two incredible caregivers as our 2013 Compassionate Care Award winners: Christine Fontana of Yale-New Haven Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Ellen Tilton of Yale Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Our Compassionate Care Award recognizes and promotes excellence in the care of families that have lost a pregnancy or infant.
Over 80 people joined us at the Orange Hills Country Club to honor Christine and Ellen. During the award ceremony, families who have been helped by Christine and Ellen shared stories of the dedicated, exemplary care they received – and continue to receive – from these wonderful nurses. All in attendance were greatly moved.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Compassionate Care Awards Celebration!
2012 Footprints on Our Hearts Walk to Remember
We were proud to host our Second Annual Footprints on Our Hearts Walk to Remember on October 14, 2012. Over 425 people gathered on a windy day at East Shore Park in New Haven, Connecticut, to remember our babies.
We are grateful to the many walkers who helped us raise nearly $38,000 in support of our programs. With such generous support, we will be able to help many more grieving families.
