GLENS FALLS, N.Y. -- A
local group that collects books to help families with babies in the neonatal
intensive care unit nearly doubled its goal this year.
Project Cameron's Story
was started by a Glens Falls family in memory of their premature son who died
on October 20, 2009 after battling infection after infection.
The goal of Project
Cameron's Story is to support the bonding of parents with their premature
babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), through the use of children's
literature and storytelling.
Every February the group
collects new children's books for the NICU at Albany Medical Center, St. Peters
and Crouse Hospital in Syracuse.
This year the group was
hoping to get 2,200, but after five days collecting at dozens of places around
the capital region, they gathered nearly 4,200.
