About Little Giraffe Foundation
When we lost our daughter, Cheyenne, we were devastated by the feeling that the world had lost a great person. She was tough and determined, 590 grams of fight, but also a kind and caring little girl. She seemed to constantly worry about her twin brother Evan, even at the expense of her own health. Cheyenne was destined to do great things and when she left us we wanted a way to realize that potential.
On March 28, 2011 we started the Little Giraffe Foundation to share that life with the world. The organization is dedicated to funding neonatal research, supporting patients and parents of the NICU, and doing one great deed per year.
It's an ambitious goal, but in meeting with neonatologists, nephrologists, cardiologists, and the myriad of other doctors in the NICU, we realized there is an opportunity for funding research to impact the quality of life after the NICU.
Additionally, having gone through this experience, we learned that there are parents who could use small things like a book to read to their baby, a camera to take pictures, or a holiday gift so they know they are not forgotten.
Most importantly, we know that Cheyenne would have dedicated her life to doing something to better the world. We want to see that happen. Each year, in addition to supporting our main goals, a small portion of donations will go to a secondary initiative to support children in need across the globe.
To make this possible we need your help.
