Happy New Year!
With your support, we made 2009 a big win for babies. Some highlights:
• Through your blogs, you let the world know how serious and common premature birth is, and how we can all help.
• Your gifts and the money you raised in March for Babies paid for grants to six new scientists working to understand and prevent premature birth.
• And with your funds, we opened 24 new NICU Family Support® sites, providing comfort and information to thousands of families with a baby in intensive care.
• We also achieved our goal in newborn screening: all states now require testing babies for at least 26 serious but treatable disorders!
We look forward to making 2010 another great year for moms, babies and families. We’re so glad to count on your support.
From all of us to all of you, happy New Year!
