NYMB Donor Mom: Candace

Candace M

My daughter Ruth spent two days in the NICU as a brand new infant due to jaundice. Thankfully with time and lots of breast milk, Ruth is now a happy and healthy 5-month-old who is on track with growth and milestones. We now choose to share our excess breast milk for the health of NICU babies and their families. I love that I can teach my daughter the value of community at such a young age. I love that I will get to tell her ‘you helped tiny babies when you were only 5 months old!’ It’s my gift to my baby and our gift to NICU babies and their families.

Candace has donated 656 oz. of liquid gold to the New York Milk Bank!
