Preemie Overcomes Feeding Challenges in JFK’s NICU
“It was hard going into the hospital every day and not taking our newborn daughter Emma home every night, but the nurses made us feel so much better about every aspect of it. In addition to practicing great medicine, they were the kindest people. They held Emma like she was their own.” — Annmarie Butare, Lebanon, N.J.
