As a new parent, what do we fear most? Illness for our child.
Premature babies are especially vulnerable to illness. Just ask Deb Discenza, co-founder of PreemieWorld LLC, a website dedicated to education and support for parents of premature babies.
In the interview below, Discenza speaks to Family First Editor-In-Chief Marijo Tinlin about the challenges parents face in the light of the current healthcare system, specifically in regards to Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), a deadly respiratory infection that threatens premature babies.
She is advocating parents sign a petition that lobbies to have the American Academy of Pediatrics reinstate the use of a drug for preemies called Synagis. Please listen to her interview and check out the petition to help premature babies and their parents today.
