On June 1st, 2013, one hundred and thirty people came together to celebrate strength, courage and resiliency. Former Essentia NICU patients, their parents, siblings, and other family members, nurses, medical staff, and volunteers gathered at Essentia Health for the 2013 NICU Family Reunion.
This was a time not only for food, prizes, and fun, but to reconnect and commemorate the smallest and most vulnerable of humanity and their ability to heal and thrive! Accomplishments of all kinds were celebrated: from breathing and eating, to walking and talking. There was no lack of inspiration and pride at this celebration…each guest left with a full heart and huge smile!
