Union Employees Donate Over $100,000 in 2017
Union Health employees are passionate about supporting the life saving work happening around them each day. During the 2017 Employee Giving Campaign, employees donated a total $103,426! As part of the campaign theme, "It Starts With Us," we asked employees to share their reason for giving back and supporting the Foundation.
When my husband and I found out I was pregnant with twins, it was one of the happiest moments of our lives.
We immediately started making plans for a nursery and pictured ourselves holding, squeezing and kissing two chubby baby boys. I think it's only natural to assume that if you take care of yourself and follow all of your doctor's advice, you will have a healthy pregnancy and everything will go as planned. So, when I went into labor at only 25 weeks, I was shocked, and our family was scared.
I was admitted to Union Hospital, where my doctor and nurses were able to stop my labor, but I had to stay at the hospital on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. Then, on November 23, 2013, at just 29 weeks and 4 days of gestation, I gave birth to our two sons, Ethan James and Owen Zachary.
