Mission

When we lost our daughter, Cheyenne, we were devastated by the feeling that the world had lost a great person. She was tough and determined, 590 grams of fight, but also a kind and caring little girl. She seemed to constantly worry about her twin brother Evan, even at the expense of her own health. Cheyenne was destined to do great things and when she left us we wanted a way to realize that potential.

On March 28, 2011 we started the Little Giraffe Foundation to share that life with the world. The organization is dedicated to funding neonatal research and supporting patients and parents of the NICU.

It's an ambitious goal, but in meeting with neonatologists, nephrologists, cardiologists, and the myriad of other doctors in the NICU, we realized there is an opportunity for funding research to impact the quality of life after the NICU.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"When my son was in the NICU, two years ago, they brought a little bag of hope. The NICU is such a sad and stressful place that the love they shared with the book, toy, and note really made our day. I will always remember how much their gift meant to us during that very stressful and scary time! I'm happy to say our little guy turns two this month ..." - Elizabeth A Carey
