Team #LeoLove - Fundraising Page

Leo couldn't wait to join this world!  He arrived 5 weeks early and has kept things interesting ever since!

As you can imagine, his unexpected and early arrival sent Simon and Nancy into a whirlwind of tough decisions and quick action.  They would have truly been lost without the expert support and service of the Neonatal and Special Care Nursery teams of Children's Minnesota.

The first two weeks in the NICU were tough on the Lewer family.  They couldn't bring their little Leo home.  Thanksgiving came and their little family would be spending it away from family gatherings in order to be bedside as Leo fought to get stronger.

Under the excellent care of neonatal doctors and nurses, Leo got stronger and finally got to go home!  Now, Leo is a wiggly and vibrant little guy with an infectious smile and adorable obsession with bananas.

Please join us and consider supporting little fighters like Leo and their families who spend sleepless nights by their hospital beds.
