The mission of Baby Colin & Little Peter Helping Families is to support families that experience infant loss and babies born prematurely that have an extended stay in the NICU in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas.
The founders of the organization, Pete and Emily McNicholas, have personally endured the tragic loss of their Son four years ago as a result of a premature birth. They currently have a beautiful 5 year old Daughter and 3 year old determined Son who was also born premature and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
Pete & Emily experienced loss, grief, hardships, and spent numerous days (at times months) in the hospital with testing, consultations, and therapy.
While navigating through this unfamiliar territory, they obtained first-hand knowledge of these circumstances and want to help families in need in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas moving forward. Whether it is assisting with hospital bills, lodging for out-of-town families with children in hospitals, or the extremely unfortunate funeral costs for a loss, they want to give back in their sons’ names and there is opportunity to do so every day!
