Nurses for Newborns


Photos and story by Diane Anderson


urses for Newborns recently held its third annual Bucking for Babies fundraiser at PBR St. Louis: A Cowboy Bar at Ballpark Village. Guests were invited to make pledges and to ride a Brahman bull. Everyone enjoyed cocktails and light snacks, while listening to country-andWestern music – and, of course, raising funds for a very important cause. Many newborns are born at risk, without health care or the bare necessities to live. The organization’s nurses provide in-home medical care to babies, along with food, clothing, diapers and a chance to survive. Also, by supporting babies born to homeless mothers, the organization’s nurses can mentor struggling mothers and serve as an added lifeline to babies.

This is a very important event because we are raising money to save babies and strengthen families in Missouri. With this fundraiser, we can continue to fight the battle of infant death in Missouri. MELINDA OHLEMILLER, CEO
