Paying it Forward to Future NICU Families

Celebrity Cruises volunteers with ICU baby

A former ICU baby NICU mom paid it forward for other parents struggling through difficult days in the NICU by hosting a holiday event in the hospital. Grateful for a healthy NICU graduate, one mom encouraged her company, Celebrity Cruises, to sponsor a holiday Cuisine & Crafts event in December for NICU families at Holtz Children’s Hospital.

A small group of Celebrity Cruises employees volunteered to serve parents a delicious lunch and to help them decorate ornaments to commemorate their baby’s first holiday. The former NICU mom, who had a premature baby and spent two months in the NICU, exchanged stories with the NICU moms, offering them comfort.

ICU baby is grateful to Celebrity Cruises for their generosity during the holiday season.
