The Quad Cities just joined surrounding communities that all offer donor breastmilk.To say this issue is near and dear to me, would be an understatement. Not only was I born preemie, who needed breastmilk at only 2 pounds, as an adult, I have donated my own breastmilk to a friend whose baby needed it until she was able to nurse. It was one of most precious things and we are all still very close to this day.

I couldn't be happier that Rock Island County joined the likes of Peoria and surroudning areas in offering a place for mothers to donate for babies in NICU.

According to the story found at,

Mothers interested in donating their milk can get more information by calling 563-327-2078 or 309-558-2881.
