The NEC Society is committed to having the voices of NEC patients and their families represented at our 2017 NEC Symposium, the first ever national NEC conference in the US! While the Symposium is geared toward healthcare professionals, the patient’s voice must be heard as well. To that aim, our Winter 2015 Fundraising Campaign will benefit the Patient-Voice Travel Fund, providing for the travel expenses of select parents to our Symposium. Parents of former NEC patients who are active within the NEC Community will be eligible.
One such deserving parent is Fauna Osborne, whose triplets Kylee, Trinity, and Cayden were born at 23 weeks gestation. After a heroic fight, Cayden lost his life to NEC. Today, Trinity and Kylee are healthy three year olds. Fauna is an active member of the NEC Society Leadership Committee, providing a voice for families like hers. Please donate to the Patient-Voice Travel Fund today and help send a parent like Fauna to the 2017 NEC Symposium.
