NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — In honor of NICU Awareness month, Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown and Rutherford hospitals are asking for notes of encouragement from NICU graduates and their parents.

The push for positivity is the brainchild of a longtime NICU registered nurse.

Letters, cards and drawings will be laminated and displayed in the NICU units to help parents draw strength from the success stories.

You can mail your note to either Saint Thomas Midtown, Rutherford or both.
