Life can take such unexpected turns, and everything can change in an instant. At 28 weeks pregnant Ashley Pullen’s life was turned upside down with the unexpected and 12 week early arrival of her daughter Avery.
“I was able to finally meet my daughter. As I held her in my arms she looked so tiny and fragile. I have never been so scared in my entire life. I knew it was going to be a long road ahead of us I just didn’t know how hard.” – Ashley Pullen
Little Avery spent 11 days on this earth receiving care from some of the best doctors in Canada at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre NICU, but sadly it was not enough to overcome the challenges Avery had as a preemie. To celebrate the short time they did have with Avery her family created Avery’s Act of Kindness: a fundraiser with a goal of raising $10,000 to buy an incubator for the Sunnybrook NICU.
Join us on June 8, 2013 in Shelburne Ontario for a fun filled day including BBQ, games for kids, wagon rides, bouncy castle, music and a silent auction & raffle! Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for children which includes a Hamburger or Hot Dog and Baked Potato. For all the event details visit their event page here.
It has been a long road for the Pullen family, and Avery’s Act of Kindness is just one more step along that road. You can support this great cause by attending the event or donating online to help them reach their goal!
