Ezeonwuka family organizes event raising $8,200 for Michael’s Feat • “We heard about Michael’s Feat from Betsy Giordano [who was an initial board member of the charity] and filled out a form online. Kai was born six weeks early, weighing only 3.2 pounds. Michael’s Feat stepped in and helped us financially and mentally during a difficult NICU journey. It was an honor doing this fundraiser and helping make a difference. Can’t wait to do it again next year,” said Jemand Ezeonwuka [The Coast Star, StarNewsGroup.com, Page 14] ... See more

Tomorrow, my son Michael would be 20 years old. After our loss of Michael, a yellow butterfly would always show me its beautiful wings and be a constant reminder that in his 83 hours on earth, Michael was able to accomplish more than most people could in 83 years! This incredible little baby boy gave me the courage to carry on and continues to show me his strength. I’m so proud of what this amazing charity has been able to accomplish in 20 years! Thank YOU for your support and friendship throughout the years. My gratitude goes beyond words. Happy 20th Birthday, Michael Gerard — continue to spread your wings and fly!!! • Please go to https://michaelsfeat.org/volunteer-donate/ and donate $20 in honor of Michael’s 20th birthday, benefitting families carrying and caring for seriously ill newborns in Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ ...
