Supporting Medically Fragile Infants and Their Families

MISSION:

Penny’s Pals Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Supporting medically fragile infants and their families. NICU-Palliative-Hospice. Forever Memories and Burial Assistance. Funding obtained through private donations, fundraising activities, and sponsorships.

VISION:

When a parent finds out their baby has a complex diagnosis, their world stops. The outside world does not. Living day to day, not knowing when it will be the last with their baby and hearing only time will tell is the reality for many families in this case.
Penny’s Pals hopes to support these families in being together from beginning to end. Creating more time for bonding, advocating, and being their parents. We hope to support these families in cherishing every moment. Sharing love, finding joy, hugs, kisses, birthdays, music, art, and creating memories that will last forever. Final arrangements can be costly and is the last thing a family should worry about when experiencing the loss of their precious baby. To apply for support, see below.

OUR STORY:

Penelope Rose Winsman (Penny), arrived Oct 31, 2019, at 31 weeks, weighing 2lbs 15.9oz after a vehicle failed to yield causing an auto collision. Penny and Mom were rushed to the hospital where an urgent emergency C-section was performed to save Penny’s life. Penny battled prematurity and an irreversible severe traumatic brain injury, sparing her brainstem and cerebellum. Medical professionals said, “Only time would tell until Penny passed.” She was given a life expectancy of six months or less. We were placed on Palliative Care and began quality of life and comfort measures but never giving up. We never left Penny’s side, during her three month stay in the NICU. She fought the entire time and graduated from the NICU and came home on Hospice care. Our journey of impending loss would also be our family’s journey of forever memories. Though we lost our Penny on June 28 2020, she gifted us memories we will cherish forever. To read Penny’s complete story, Click Here.

During our journey with Penny, we received an outpouring of support from our family, friends and community, who we now call PALS! We are beyond grateful and hope to provide that kind of love and care for our medically fragile pals and their families.

Every Penny to Penny’s Pals will go towards the betterment of medically fragile infants and their families. Each donation will go to fund Forever Memories and Burial Assistance. You can help families with medically fragile infants cherish every moment, when tomorrow is not promised.

Thank You for your donation. Thank You for being a Pal!
