AB’s Story:
131 days in the NICU

Adrian "AB" Baldridge is a fighter. Born at 23 weeks, weighing only 1 lb 5 oz, AB spent the first 131 days of his life in the Neonatal ICU. It was during that time that Jes and Christopher Baldridge heard about the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund for the first time.
Watch to hear how Melissa’s Fund helped save AB’s life.
“The difference between having Adrian in 2016 and having Adrian in 1996 or 1986, he doesn’t make it in those earlier years. If you ask any nurse or any administrator at Huntsville Hospital, they will tell you that is possible because of the donations and the support that the Melissa George Neonatal Memorial Fund brings to the NICU.”
