For Jack

My first child Jack died of Transposition of the Great Arteries in October 2021. I thought that the 29 days we spent with Jack as he fought to survive would be the hardest of my life, but I was naive. The pain of the loss is still intense. The grief comes in waves and sometimes out of nowhere.

I joined a company called Pomelo Care shortly after Jack's death. We're trying to improve pregnancy and birth outcomes by offering 24/7 telehealth support to people who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or have a child under the age of one. I'm trying to channel my grief towards something productive to keep other families out of the NICU -- the same reason I'm running this race.
