Augusta, GA- In 2009 Emma Nickole, also known as Nicki, was born at just over a pound when her mother was just 26 weeks pregnant. She was delivered by emergency C-section because her kidneys were dilated.
Nicki was so small she was rushed directly to the NICU with an 85% chance of survival. A few weeks later the family was told she had a massive stroke and she was not going to survive. But she did!
Nicki spent months in the Children's Hospital of Georgia going through treatments to survive. She had kidney surgery to take off the dead part of her kidney.
Today she is an active 3-year-old that does not let anything or anyone get her down. Her mother says she does have some developmental delays but she thrives everyday.
Now her family is saying thank you to the hospital by raising money for the hospital.
The money goes directly to the hospital to help them buy life saving equipment and provide world-class care to children all over Georgia.
