NEC Awareness Day (May 17)

Please help us raise awareness and funds to build a world without necrotizing enterocolitis!

World NEC Awareness Day is May 17. 

NEC is a devastating intestinal disease that affects vulnerable infants during their first weeks and months of life. Up to 50% of the babies who get NEC will die, and survivors often face life-long health challenges. Yet, few people have even heard of the disease.

Let’s elevate the conversation around NEC and expose the scars, the trauma, and the stillness that come after a NEC diagnosis. Our goal is to empower families and stakeholders to join the international community that’s working to build a world without NEC.

In honor of #NECday on May 17, please show us how NEC has impacted your life and consider making a donation to support the NEC Society’s work. Tag us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin, and use the hashtags: #preventNEC #NECday

Here’s how you can get involved: 

Do you have more ideas or suggestions on how the NEC Society can better serve our community? If so, please email! We’d love to hear from you!
