This is a talk about two boys – Logan and Lewis. It’s also the story of their parents – Joanne and Scott. But it is also the story of many parents of premature babies who have to endure weeks away from home, often away from their families, their support networks, their friends.

Joanne and Scott turned their experience into something else. They wanted to be able to support other parents that might experience a little of what they went through. Through the work of Helping Little Hands they help provide real food for parents in the NICU. Through local community partners they provide massages to tired shoulders and fuel vouchers for weary parents. If you want to donate to Helping Little Hands then head over to their web-page.
