About this Cause

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating intestinal disease that affects vulnerable infants during their first weeks and months of life. Every day at least one child dies from NEC. Each year, more than 3,500 babies are diagnosed. Up to 40% of the babies who develop NEC will die, and survivors often face life-long health challenges. Yet, few people outside of the NICU have even heard of the disease. Throughout May, we will elevate the conversation around NEC and expose the scars, the trauma, and the stillness that come after a NEC diagnosis. Our goal is to empower families and stakeholders to join the international community that’s working to build a world without NEC.
