Guests attending Haylee Schultz’s eighth birthday party this month were asked not to bring gifts for Haylee.
Instead, the second grader asked her friends and family to bring donations for the Baker Regional NICU at Crouse Hospital.
Haylee is a Crouse Little Fighter, having spent a week in the NICU after her birth in March 2009. Her mother, Jennifer Schultz, was admitted to the hospital in early February and Haylee was born at 36 weeks. She was on vapotherm in the NICU and treated for jaundice.
