Infants who end up in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) fight the biggest uphill battle they will ever face. From the moment they enter this world, these tiny humans are inundated with medication, isolation, and procedures to try and sustain their fragile little lives. Parents cannot always be there all the time to see to their needs.

The fight goes on one day at a time, and it is the nurses of the NICU who are on the front lines doing battle with the babies.
