When the hospital’s new NICU was built, donors sponsored and named 43 of the 44 rooms. One was left unnamed and a campaign was launched to raise the $25,000 needed to dedicate the room in Emma’s name, which was done on what would have been her 17th birthday.
A balloon release was also held Monday night at Central High School in Emma’s honor.
