Mercedes you are AMAZING! You spoke at a radio convention in Dallas, that I was attending

“Hey, wanna know something cool?”

“Yeah!!!”

September is #nicuawarenessmonth so big hugs to all the brave little ones that started off as warriors straight out of the gate, to their parents that prayerfully stood by their side, and all the medical team members who helped get those little warriors out in to the real world! 💚
