ABOUT US

Ben's Wish Foundation, Inc. is a registered 501 (c) (3) public charity and was created to provide care and bereavement packages to the NICU and PICU units of local hospitals. Ben's Wish Foundation will use donations, monetary or in-kind, to prepare these packages.

No parent expects to be taking a trip to the NICU when their baby is born, let alone think about what they should bring. Our foundation will support these parents by providing care packages to include such items as journals (to write down the thousands of medical terms you never expect to hear), hygiene items and snacks (so they don't have to worry about leaving their babies for extended periods of time), and so much more!

No parent expects to leave the hospital without their child either. This is devastating. Our organization will comfort these parents by providing bereavement packages to include such things as special blankets/pockets made from wedding gowns for final photos and burial services. These packages will also include items that affirm the importance of their child's life.

Ben's Wish Foundation was founded by me, Kim Denton, Benjamin's mother. When Ben passed away, I knew I wanted him to be remembered in a special way. This organization will not only help remember Ben, it will help others!

When you are not in either of these two situations (Being in a unfamiliar place called the NICU or PICU and having your child face death) you really don't understand the depth of what is needed. Even having a tissue that can withstand your tears is a huge deal!

So please join us in remembering Ben and helping our WISH come true- That parents, during these unexpected moments, have our support!
