On April 12, 2011, Pierce was born at 23 weeks gestation (over 4 months early) and weighed only 670 grams (1lb 8oz).
He endured a grueling 118-day NICU stay, which included surgeries, numerous procedures and infections. Today, Pierce is at home and thriving.
Our mission is simple: to offer love and support to other families facing situations similar to ours. On our darkest of days, we were so blessed and encouraged by the generosity of others, including complete strangers. And we were encouraged when we heard stories of other surviving micropreemies. In short, that is why we feel the need to give back.
Pierce’s Project is a non-profit fund, managed by Novant Healthcare Foundation which serves families of micropreemies and chronically ill infants at all stages of their journey- before, during and after NICU stays.
Since our launch in April of 2012, Pierce’s Project has grown to consist of a board of 12 members who are all passionate about supporting families of micropreemies in the greater Charlotte area. Our care packages can be found at the two major children’s hospitals: Novant’s Hemby Children’s Hospital and CMC’s Levine Children’s Hospital.
Each year approximately 250-300 micropreemies (babies born under 27 weeks and/or 2 lbs) are born in Charlotte. It is our hope that each and every one of their families will find support in Pierce’s Project.
