2014 Preemie Power Finalists Selected

2014 Preemie PowerWe are excited to announce the finalists for Hand to Hold’s Fifth Annual Preemie Power Photo and Essay Contest as Premature Awareness Month gets started! The contest is held each year to celebrate the strength and resilience that NICU families and their tiny (and some not so tiny, anymore) children share with us.

These finalists will move on to the second round of voting where a panel of NICU healthcare providers and NICU parents will determine the final winners for each category and an overall winner. Winners for all the awards will be announced November 18, 2014.

Be sure to read their stories of hope and add your comments, too! Special thanks to our contest sponsors: Mead Johnson Nutrition/Enfamil, Timeless Medical Systems, Neotech Products, Sundance Solutions, and The Boppy Company.
