Preemie & Special Formula Fund – Baby Paul

Meet Paul, the newest beneficiary of LWB’s Preemie and Special Formula Fund!

Nutrition Success Story 6.15

Having exhausted all their resources, Paul’s parents applied to the Unity Initiative for help in funding their infant son’s medical needs. Born prematurely, Paul started life at only 2 kg. Since his birth, he has had several surgeries, including needing a colostomy due to complications following hernia surgery.

Even with surgical intervention, Paul continues to struggle and is not gaining weight and growing as he should. His doctor suggested Wyeth S-26 SMA PDF Gold formula.  Yes, that’s a long name, but we have seen this formula help struggling babies gain weight and thrive.  However, as you probably already guessed, it is a very costly formula which was well beyond the reach of Paul’s parents, since they had spent all their funds trying to save their infant son’s life.

Thanks to the wonderful supporters of the Preemie and Special Formula Fund, we could immediately send a case of this special Wyeth formula out to Paul and his family.  We have already heard that it is making a wonderful difference to this beautiful baby boy. Here’s to Paul’s full tummy, and may he start packing on those precious pounds!
