István's Story

Updated: Dec 28, 2020



Amanda's son István was hospitalized for 216 days.

He weighed 1.6 pounds at birth and was born at 25.2 weeks.

"Although Caiden's Hope was founded in July 2010, nine months before István's traumatic entrance into this world and his 216-day hospitalization, we did not know of this non-profit or one like it. In an effort to ensure other families have the support they need during their NICU stay, we are passionate about spreading the word about Caiden's Hope and fundraising for such a worthy cause."
