Meet Kelly!

Kelly Gallagher is the dynamic founder of The Superhero Project and has helped hundreds of families during their NICU journey. The Superhero Project was established in 2015, a year after her twin boys were born 8 weeks premature. Kelly has donated $45,000 and brought the gift of Angel Eye technology, a 24/7 camera system that allows families remote access to see their infants, to 4 Philadelphia area hospitals.  These cameras allow families and hospital staff to work together as a team to care for the premature infant.

Kelly has also brought gift baskets, gift cards, hotel stays, photo sessions and carved the idea for The Gift of Time room at Holy Redeemer Hospital, a space where families who have lost their baby can spend time and make memories.
Besides being a passionate philanthropist, Kelly is a busy  mom of 4 young children and a full time 2nd grade elementary school teacher.

In 2017, Kelly was nominated and honored as a KYW Women of the Year recipient in their Under 40: Rising Stars Edition. Kelly's hope is that The Superhero Project can continue to impact lives and provide support and encouragement for NICU families.
