Chillin with Dylan
Inspired by the miraculous birth of Dylan Roberts, Chillin With Dylan is an event that raises money in order to help those families that have also traveled the NICU.
Dylan was born on 3/23/18. What was supposed to be a scheduled C-Section ended up with an emergency that I will never forget. That day took a turn when they couldn’t find Dylans heartbeat. He came silently into this world and the nurses and doctors worked so hard on him. They brought him back to life and gave me hope that miracles exist. Dylan was intubated and flown to CHOP to be placed on a cooling bed where he spent the next 27 days showing us what Superheroes are made of. He has since shown us that living life with each moment is the only way to live.
We found this amazing organization, The Superhero Project, to partner with in hopes to bring a Cooling bed to Holy Redeemer Hospital. We were able to raise a little over $11,000 and Superhero brought us home to match it and a little more. We donated the cooling bed in Dylans honor so that other parents don’t have to be separated from their baby at birth.
This event each year brings on new things to bring to families that have traveled the NICU. If you want to be apart of this amazing event and help out. Let me know.
One of our Superheroes!
“MIRACLES COME IN THE SMALLEST PACKAGES”
My name is Katie Roberts. I am a NICU mom and I work full time for a National Home Builder focusing on Apartment Living.
I have 4 amazing children, all boys, ranging from 5 to 16 years old. They keep me pretty busy and make my heart melt daily.
My youngest, Dylan, is my NICU miracle. His Apgar score of ‘0’ shocked us all. After being resuscitated and intubated and helicoptered to a different hospital he spent 27 days in the NICU. The first 3 were on a cooling bed. Every day thereafter he showed us just how resilient he was. He was released without any medical intervention needed, however, he has permanent hearing loss in his right ear. That doesn’t stop him from running around with his brothers showing them just how tough he is. He truly is our Miracle baby.
Kelly and The Superhero Project has provided an amazing amount of love and support during our journey thus far. This foundation has allowed me and my family to raise awareness for HIE (Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy), a type of brain damage that occurs when an infant’s brain doesn’t receive enough oxygen and blood. With the support of this amazing foundation we were able to raise enough money to get our Hospital a Cooling Bed - one they didn’t have and Dylan needed.
I am so proud to be apart of this foundation and help and support other NICU families. This journey has lots of ups and downs but I want to be here to show these families that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
