Our ambassador



The Gallelli Family

Our boys Nicholas & Joseph were born at 26 weeks 5 days weighing just 2 pounds each. With complications being noticed at 24 weeks, it was the best decision to deliver the boys at this time to give Joseph more attention that was needed due to an enlarged heart. Our journey of 80 days for Nicholas and 83 days for Joseph was many ups and downs. At the end of our NICU journey we brought home two healthy boys who simply needed to continue to grow and develop. Now the boys are doing great and will be 6 years old in August! As parents of little boys that came home well before their due date, when the odds were really against them, we are honored to be the DuPage Ambassador Family. I feel it's important to be able to share our story to people. There may be a family out there just at the beginning of their journey with a preemie and we can only hope that our experience can be a source of encouragement and true testament that with the help and support of organizations such as the March of Dimes you can have a great outcome.
