Letter From Our Founders
We are so grateful that you found Bee Mighty. We know spending time in the NICU was not part of your plan. We also know that while the NICU can be overwhelming, coming home to learn that you have limits on what you can provide your child for their development is shocking.
We know because we are former NICU parents and our hope is that we can fulfill a void, relieve financial burdens and provide you with some comfort that you are not alone.
While every NICU journey is unique, we have scrubbed our hands raw before holding our baby, cried tears we didn’t know we had left and felt overcome with worry and despair. We have walked down those isolating NICU corridors and spent hours our boys isolettes.
We founded Bee Mighty because we realized NICU graduates may have additional challenges to overcome and could need the assistance of therapy and/or medical equipment. We want to be able to give children (just like ours!) the extra chance they deserve, regardless of financial state or circumstance of their unique birth.
We have provided adaptive bikes for a teenager who just wanted to ride a bike with her brother. We have provided grants for children to go to camp, built confidence through horses, provided wheelchairs, adaptive car seats, cranial bands and countless hours of physical, occupational and speech therapy.
On that epic evening in 2012, Bee Mighty announced: “We believe families should not have to choose!” If therapy is the difference between your child being able to walk or talk, Bee Mighty feels families should have the right to explore care for their child without limits. We are committed to easing the financial burden of other families whose private insurance covers a minimum of what their NICU graduate needs. Since founding Bee Mighty, we have served hundreds of families within our community!
Anything truly awesome started with at least one BEEliever, and we will forever be grateful for your belief in us, as we continue to turn our shared vision into a reality. We will always support the tinniest warriors.
With Tremendous Gratitude,
Candace Richter Heather Hucks
