Breastmilk is saving this baby's life

Click here to read this story about the amazing power of breastmilk to save a baby's life (and hearing, and eyesight)! Baby Jayden was born with congenital syphilis, blind, deaf, and addicted to alcohol and cocaine. Unable to tolerate any formula well, her foster mother fed her the formula that was "least bad" for her, but she was never healthy, and often was close to death. Then they tried breastmilk, and what a difference it made!

Because of her multiple food intolerances and health situation, as a toddler she is still very much in need of breastmilk, so if you live in Southeast Michigan and have any breastmilk in the freezer, or are currently breastfeeding and able to pump extra, you can help to keep this baby alive [see the website for more details, including drop-off points].
