JAD FUND EVENTS

 

AUGUST 2013

We have committed and began funding to provide the NICU's in the entire North Shore LIJ Health System with access to the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program. This will be a joint effort along with our friends at the TLC Foundation and Pat Covelli Foundation. 

This interactive educational web-based software program is the "best of breed" attempt to present NICU families with 
a "guide-map" to the road ahead in advance of the difficult and unknown journey they are about to embark on. The neonatologists at North-Shore LIJ need this program to enhance their quality of care by preparing parents, caregivers, and relatives of premature and sick infants. This program will teach all involved "what to expect" before, during, and after hospitalization. It will improve care by removing worry and uncertainty of the basics on the family side and creating tremendous efficiency by allowing the doctors and nurses to focus more solely on what they do best - saving babies.

JORDAN ALEX DUBROW

THE JORDAN ALEX DUBROW BLOOD GAS LAB AT NORTH SHORE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL NICU

 

OUR STORY

Jordan Alex Dubrow was born on July 5, 2011 at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. An otherwise fully healthy, strong baby boy, Jordan was diagnosed with a severe case of Meconium Aspiration Syndrome. Joy quickly turned to great sorrow as Jordan fought this serious condition, which caused blockage to his airways. Although Jordan received the best possible medical care and displayed an incredible amount of fight, he lost his battle on the morning of July 8, 2011.

Jordanís parents (Stacey and Josh), while shocked and devastated by this sudden tragedy, developed a sincere admiration for all of the doctors, nurses, and staff at the hospital NICU, and were especially touched by their compassion and sensitivity both during and after their stay in the hospital.

Determined to help other babies survive, while creating a living legacy for Jordan, Stacey and Josh asked their family and friends to donate to the NICU in Jordanís memory.  Additionally, Joshís CPA firmís charitable foundation, The NYBKW Charitable Foundation, established this fund in Jordanís name to raise money specifically for the NICU. Within weeks, both the Dubrow family and the hospital were overwhelmed by the amount of donations received.

After meeting with the hospital and Jordanís NICU doctor, Stacey and Josh decided to dedicate their fundraising efforts to help the hospital purchase a brand new Blood Gas Measurement Machine for the NICU. This machine will allow for faster response times, allowing for quicker life-saving treatment of babies with breathing difficulties similar to Jordanís case.   In just over 2 months, the Jordan Alex Dubrow Fund raised over $50,000, which has allowed the NICU to purchase this machine that was installed and put to use in May 2012. 

The JAD Fund continued its mission and has since raised additional funds bringing our cumulative total raised to over $75,000  since inception.  During August 2013, the JAD Fund teamed with the Tender Loving Care Foundation to fund the purchase of the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program for the entire North Shore-LIJ Health System. This state-of-the-art interactive software program will allow critical education and knowledge to be delivered directly to the families of those with babies in th NICU and allowing the doctors and nurses to focus their time on what they do best, saving babies. 

The JAD Fund has no plans to stop its committment to raise funds toward the purchases of another critical life-saving machine for the NICU and other meaningful projects at the North Shore-LIJ Cohen Children's Medical Center.  With your much appreciated and needed help, we are working to ensure that The Jordan Alex Dubrow Fund will continue to provide the NICU with the equipment it needs to save as many babies as possible. We sincerely hope that our collective efforts will keep other parents from going through the tragedy we experienced and we thank you for your support with all our hearts.

If you have further interest in donating time, money, or resources to this life-saving cause, please contact Josh Dubrow at (631) 845-5252 or jadfund@nybkw.com
