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.

My name is Katie Roberts. I am a NICU mom and I work full time for a National Home Builder focusing on Apartment Living. The real estate/property management market has always been an interest of mine and I have spent the last 14 years working my way around it and finding my place with my current company for the past 5 years.
I have 4 amazing children, all boys, ranging from 19 months to 12 years old (PUBERTY AHHH). They keep me pretty busy and make my heart melt daily. They have taught me many lessons and helped shape me into the mom I want to be. My youngest, Dylan, is my NICU miracle. His Apgar score of ‘0’ made me realize that life is to not be taken lightly. He spent 27 days in the NICU and after being intubated and on a cooling bed he showed me just how resilient he is. He was released and has hearing loss in his right ear. Otherwise he is 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 Kelly and her foundation we were able to raise enough money to get our Hospital a Cooling Bed.
I am excited to help and support other NICU families along their journey and show them that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Wanna Join Us?
This is the 3rd Annual Chillin’ With Dylan event in collaboration with The Superhero Project!
This event is to raise money in Dylans name to help those families that have also traveled the NICU.
We have been able to donate a cooling bed, bilirubin blankets and we are hoping to continue that trend to add additional supplies for those families in the time in need.
