May 2020 – preemieFAMILY Support

BabyBuns for Life Network, Inc.
Founder: Dana Griffin-Graves
Outreach: Virginia and Texas

Our mission is to educate, inspire and provide financial and emotional support for parents of infants born in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Our organization was founded by Dana Griffin-Graves. The organization was established because our family knows and understands all too well the feeling of uncertainty that comes with a premature birth. Our son was born weighing just 13 ounces (he was the smallest baby to survive in the state of Virginia). He spent 356 days in the NICU and had 4 major surgeries while in the NICU. His name is Kaleb but is affectionately known as “BabyBuns.”

Under our health and wellness initiative, we provide monthly meals called the “Miracle of Life Dinner.” We provide weekly snacks for the parents lounge, gift and gas cards, NICU journals and inspirational books. Our signature items are BabyBuns Preemie T-shirts and BabyBuns Blessing Bags filled with items to encourage and support parents. Infant car seats are also given upon request when a baby is released from the NICU.
