Meet Miracle Family, Team Berkley, who has been volunteering and dominating the 5K fundraising efforts for the past 8 years. Brooke and her family walk in memory of their daughter Berkley. Berkley was diagnosed with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia at 17 weeks in Utero. This is a conditionin which a hole in the diaphragm allows abdominal organs to move into the chest and restrict lung development. Their Doctor and Miracle Babies Founder, Dr. Daneshmand had to break this devastating news to them and was by their side to offer emotional support from that point on.He helped them deal with the fact that she only had a 50% chance of survival and if she did survive they were looking at an average 3 month stay in the NICU. Instead of spending 9 months preparing to bring a baby home, they spent 9 months preparing for a long NICU stay. Unfortunately, Berkley lost her fight against this devastating birth defect after just 2 days. This is a journey no parent should ever have to go through.
For the past 8 years, Team Berkley unites, remembers, and honors Berkley. They have has raised over $75,000 for Miracle Babies! Thank you Team Berkley your efforts have supported thousands of NICU families over the years.
