Every day a child is in the NICU can be frightening and uncertain, but holidays are especially tough, as families miss the joy of celebrations together, especially during the pandemic. Babies in the NICU may have been born too soon or too small, or with a medical condition that requires intensive care.
Some of Kansas City’s tiniest babies celebrated their first Halloween dressed up, thanks to the March of Dimes and Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City. March of Dimes volunteer photographers will capture the adorable trick-or-treaters in keepsake photos for their families. This is the first Halloween we celebrated with our volunteer photographers since pre-pandemic, so it is special not only to our families but to our staff and volunteers.
