Amy and Chris George are grateful parents with a passion for supporting Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children’s Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. In June 2005, Amy gave birth at 26 weeks to Melissa Suzanne and Ann Catherine. Melissa died just a few hours after she was born, and Ann Catherine was a patient in Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children’s Regional NICU for 68 days. Amy and Chris were touched by the care both of their daughters received, and in November 2005 established the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund to raise money to buy critically needed technology for the RNICU.
The fund has provided more than $3.2 million since 2005 to purchase equipment for the NICU and to provide support for families of premature infants.
Friends of all ages support the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund by participating in Swim for Melissa and Miracle Bash. Click here for information about Swim for Melissa and the Miracle Bash
