THE FIGHT CLUB FOUNDATION
"BECAUSE FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE IS HARD ENOUGH"
Doctors declared Ali was dead at 24 weeks old in the womb; but Ali was a fighter. Ali fought for his life another three weeks and was born at 27 weeks and 5 days old at only 1lb 4oz. This was the beginning of his next fight. Every day a new challenge and new milestone. During his 117 day stay at NICU he overcame insurmountable obstacles to become a strong and healthy boy. This year Ali turns 4 and is strong, healthy, and smart boy. His namesake Muhammad Ali once said, "You don't lose if you get knocked down, you lose when you stay down." Ali did not stay down. Ali fought to live.
Ali is one of thousands of stories every year that happen to families all around the world. Babies in the NICU may have been born too small, too soon, or with a medical condition that requires intensive care. Throughout the NICU experience, parents can be involved in their baby’s care in a variety of important ways. REVIVE has partnered with The Fight Club Foundation to help support NICU families during their baby’s time in the NICU and as they exit into day to day life, because fighting for your life is hard enough.
The Fight Club Foundation leads programs and advocacy so that every family can have the best possible start. Supporting lifesaving research; they provided comfort and support to families in NICUs; and advocate for those who need us most, moms and babies. REVIVE is excited to partner with The Fight Club Foundation as we are stronger and more committed than ever to guiding moms through every stage of the pregnancy journey. We are fighting for the smallest among us and advocating for their health each and every day. And we do so resources and knowledge needed to build a brighter future for us all.
The program is currently being implemented in over multiple NICUs across Washington. For more information about The Fight Club Foundation please email firstname.lastname@example.org
