When I was searching for a place where I could donate my breastmilk to, I came across Helping Hands Milk Bank. I couldn’t think of a better place to work with. I wanted to be able to help moms and preemies that needed a little extra love and help.
Do you have experiences with a premature little one or the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)?
I was a preemie and I had a friend who had preemies.

Have you or a loved one been touched by breast cancer?
My father’s cousin had breast cancer and survived the battle.
Do you have a special connection to Susan G. Komen research?
I know how cancer in general can affect a family. Being able to help support efforts to fight cancer and find a cure was meaningful to me.
