Pain can motivate people to do extraordinary things. For Kimberly Novod, it led to the creation of a foundation for support, resources, and healing. Saul’s Light is a New Orleans-based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by providing financial assistance for non-medical costs to families; supplying bereavement resources for families who’ve lost children in NICU; and creating community for NICU parents through events, yoga classes, support groups and more. Started in 2015, Saul’s Light was created in memory of Kimberly’s son, Saul, who passed away after 20 days in the NICU. “It began as an effort to pay forward all the extra love and care my family received during Saul’s NICU stay and eventual passing,” she said. “So many people embraced us that it made sense to extend my gratitude to others.” Since its inception, Saul’s Light has donated over $75,000K to over 300 families to help alleviate the financial strain experienced by families. The organization has partnered with several local hospitals, such as East Jefferson, Touro Infirmary and Children’s Hospital, to provide assistance to families, and install “Little Libraries,” which give books for parents to read to their children while in the NICU. These simple acts breath a sense of normalcy into the parents’ lives by giving them access to community and peer support. “It’s important for families to not feel alone,” said Veronica Martinez, a peer-mentor and former NICU parent. “They need to have their emotions and concerns validated, resources at reach and able to look somewhere or to someone for guidance, knowledge, emotional support, and if needed, financial support.” Veronica’s son, Sebastian, was also born prematurely at 26 weeks. He spent 90 days in the NICU at Ochsner Baptist before being discharged. He is now three years old and lives life to

the fullest extent through playing soccer, watching The Avengers, and cooking. Since hearing about Saul’s Light, Veronica volunteered as a peer mentor to help alleviate the worry and decrease the trauma parent’s go through during this process. According to a study by March of Dimes and Stanford University, 60 percent of NICU parents are at risk of experiencing post-traumatic-stress symptoms due to the financial, emotional, and physical burden that comes with being a NICU parent. Saul’s Light long-term goals include establishing a patient assistance fund and Little Library in every hospital NICU in metro New Orleans; donating cooling cots for bereavement care; offering peer to peer support; and awarding scholarships for nursing and medical students pursuing a career in neonatology.

If you’re interested in supporting Saul’s Light, you can donate to the organization at https://www.saulslight.org/donate
