In October they had a Zoom meeting with Ashley Brazil, who gave an overview of Medicare for the open enrollment period from Oct 15th – Dec 7th and on what the different parts (A, B, C, D, G) of Medicare represent. They also had Today is a Good Day’s founder Martha Sharkey come to their meeting.
She explained her family’s journey and how it led them to creating this foundation. Today is A Good Day provides personal and financial support for families with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. While going through their journey the family, friends, nurses, and doctors reminded Paul and Martha to take the NICU journey “one day at a time.” They always rejoiced in the “good” days. One of their programs give care packages for families with premature or sick baby in the NICU. Their care package comes in a canvas tote with a journal, “On the Night You Were Born” book, a “One Day at a Time” bracelet, set of bonding squares (for parents/child to swap), water bottle, hand sanitizer, lip balm, and tissues.
