Making a huge difference for the smallest patients

Sometimes the biggest miracles come in the tiniest “packages”. That’s what happens whenever a baby is born prematurely and receives extra-special care at the JGH. These infants have brought us all together at The Auxiliary for our newest and most ambitious venture, the Tiny Miracle Fund, to purchase 20 “giraffe” incubators for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

At $65,000 each, these incubators carry a hefty price tag, but after just several months, The Auxiliary has already raised more than $100,000 to promote growth, stability and a high survival rate for these fragile patients. In the process, The Auxiliary has boosted its already high visibility in schools, at social gatherings and through networking in the far-reaching use of social media.

As you pass through the main lobby, look for the donation boxes and incubator for the Tiny Miracle Fund. Also be sure to remember The Auxiliary whenever you consider making a charitable donation or sending greeting cards on various occasions.
