We did it! You did it!

We did it! You did it! You helped us raise $3795, almost doubling our goal of $2000. Without your help it would not have been possible. We are grateful beyond words for your support.

"I cannot tell you how amazed and delighted we all were by the generosity of your donors -$3795!!!! You have managed to generate so much goodwill and provided the Family Advisory Council with a resource to help many families in need. You have touched the hearts of so many individuals." Alison Brooks, Clinical Nurse Specialist at Alta Bates NICU.

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
