THE TROMBLEY FAMILY

My name is Leslie, I am the proud momma of three NICU graduates. We began our NICU journey in March 2014 when my first miracle, Kendall, was born at 28 weeks weighing only 1lb 15oz. Kendall was previously diagnosed with congenital heart defects that contributed to her early arrival. During her 133-day NICU stay she had to undergo two heart surgeries before coming home on oxygen, a feed tube, and many medications. Just before Kendall turned 3, we welcomed our boy/girl twins to the world at 32 weeks. Quinn weighed 3lbs 13oz while her brother Callen was a little bigger at 4lbs 4oz. We once again started our journey, this time as a family of 5 in the NICU. The twins thrived without any other health complications and were released just before Christmas in 2016 after a 13-day stay. Shortly after Kendall’s homecoming, I began volunteering among other parents of NICU graduates at our birthing hospital, St Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac. One of their amazing nurses began a Parent Advisory Board where we provide support for current NICU babies and their families along with participating in the March of Dimes Walk every year to help spread awareness for premature births. The Trombley family is committed to giving back to the March of Dimes and raising money for the organization.
