DeLanee's Story

10 years ago, Becky and Tommy, were blessed to be pregnant with their second child. Shortly thereafter they learned that they were going to be parents to a little girl, but the probability of their daughter living for very long was extremely low. Their daughter was diagnosed with a condition called Dandy-Walker Cyst. The doctors believed that their baby girl would deteriorate and pass away during pregnancy, but much to their surprise DeLanee developed until 28 weeks gestation when she was delivered and lived for three hours. As you can imagine, these 3 hours was precious time that they spent as a family with their daughter taking pictures, bathing, dressing and holding her until she passed away in their arms. Upon DeLanee's passing, the nurses brought the family a box to put their daughter’s belongings in to take home with them. Because DeLanee was born in January the nurses were able to find a leftover Christmas box. That Christmas box became extremely special to them and they clung to it and the contents inside that held their daughter’s precious belongings as they left the hospital without their baby. It was because of this box that the inspiration for Lanee’s Legacy began. . .

Radio Show Opportunity!

What a fun and exciting week for us!  Lanee's Legacy was presented with an awesome opportunity to be a guest on the radio show "Candid Conversation Wise Counsel" where I was interviewed about our organization, what we do and how others can help. 

Boy, was it different that our previous experience with live television!!   It was considerably more laid back and easy to just sit and talk with someone about something so important to us. Not to mention, there was no hair and make-up to fret over (instead just how weird my voice sounds). Anyway, we're super excited for it to air and the potential prospects and opportunities it may provide us to continue to grow. 

Please tell your friends and tune in tomorrow, Saturday, June 1st at 8:30 p.m. on 960 AM The Patriot to hear the interview.
