Benefiting Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children’s Neonatal ICU through the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund

Swim for Melissa


Miracle Bash

This two-part event has something for the whole family! At Swim for Melissa, hundreds of kids ages four to 14 swim laps to raise money for the babies. Miracle Bash features a buffet dinner, one of the largest silent auctions in town and fun games. 

Every year, Miracle Bash and Swim for Melissa raise essential funds to meet the needs of babies in the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. The 2022 events provided:
  • a new ventilator,
  • a high-tech neonatal ventilator to help our most critically ill babies,
  • a high-flow nasal cannula that supplies humidified and heated oxygen,
  • specialized recliners so parents are comfortable by the bedside,
  • Beads of Courage and bereavement necklaces, and
  • other critical respiratory equipment.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the cause to make this possible for our Neonatal ICU babies and families! 

Thank you to our top 2022 event sponsors!

“A life saved is a powerful thing. The Huntsville Hospital NICU saved our Charlie before he could even comprehend what his life might become. As parents, we’re reminded of that all the time. Charlie lost his first tooth last week – without the NICU we wouldn’t have gotten a visit from the Tooth Fairy. He started kindergarten this year – without the NICU we wouldn’t have had a first day of school. And without the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund, the Huntsville Hospital NICU doctors wouldn’t have much of the equipment and resources they use to save brand new lives every day.”
Judd Vowell, NICU father
