Our son Carter was born a micro preemie at 24 weeks and 2 days. Carter was so strong and such a fighter. After only 74 hours, he couldn't fight any longer and we lost him.We are beyond grateful for the time we spent with him and to have been able to hold him, kiss him, and fall in love with him. We are so proud to be Carter's parents.
We want Carter's life to live on every day and impact the lives of others. We want to share Carter's story. Our hope is to help NICU parents navigate the difficult journey ahead, provide resources to parents who have experienced the unimaginable loss of a child and resources for family and friends who don't know what to do for a loved one who has just lost a child. Carter's Cause is being created to do just that and more.
