Baby Harrison (also known as mama's little pickle) was born on October 19, 2021, with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) resulting in his lungs being severely underdeveloped. Due to Harrison's condition, the doctors did not think he would make it through the night. However, Harrison miraculously survived seven (7) days. And, although his time with us was much shorter than we wanted, he provided us with unwavering strength and a lifetime of love and happiness.
In honor of Harrison's strength, determination and ability to brighten our souls, we have started a memorial fund to remember our son, Harrison, by supporting the work of the Perinatal (immediately before and after birth) Palliative (providing patients relief from serious illness) Care Team at Johns Hopkins Hospital. We would be honored if you could contribute in his memory or join our efforts in spreading awareness of his beautiful life. Our family was humbled to be cared for and supported by this team during the worst time of our lives. We would like to make sure that this critical resource exists for other families that experience such tragic events.
All donations to support the Baby Harrison Mullins Perinatal Memorial Fund, which benefits the Perinatal Palliative Care program at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Donations will not only contribute to the proliferation of this program but also to the support of other families receiving a difficult prenatal diagnosis like CDH. Staff members—like Chaplain Kat Kowalski, who had a profound impact on our experience—are funded through philanthropy, and Hopkins needs your support to continue this important work.
Thanks in advance for your support and consideration.
Jeff and Jessica, Harrison's proud parents
