Our Mission

The Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation is comitted to support families of children with long term illnesses.
Our main focus is on but is not limited to, helping families with babies in the Pittsburgh area Neonatal Intensive Care Units.

Toiletry Kits and Snack Bags provide basic everyday needs so that a parent can focus on the needs of their child.
Holiday deliveries provide a Little Ray of Sunshine by helping families know that no matter what is going on
in the outside world that their is someone thinking of them. Gift cards for gas, groceries or eating on the go
help make the fianancial burdens of a long-term illness a little easier to bear.

Holiday Gifts

Each holiday throughout the year we deliver a handprint or footprint card to the parents of the NICU. At the 2012 walk, I (Ryan) was quoted as saying that I remembered coming home the first night from Pittsburgh without Emma. Chrissy and I had printed out a picture and put in a frame so we had a part of our Baby Girl beside our bed with us. Chrissy and I believe if the parents can take home their child's print, they will have a part of their child with them at home to put beside their bed.

In addition, we deliver Christmas gifts and Easter gifts to the babies of the NICUs in Pittsburgh.
