H1N1 creates shortage at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Mothers' Milk Bank

January 11, 2010

The H1N1 flu season has created a shortage of Mothers Milk at the Presbyterian/St. Lukes Medical Centers Mothers Milk Bank. Many of our donors had to stop giving because they were sick from the flu or received the nasal H1N1 flu vaccine. In addition to the flu season, the holidays also put a strain on our supply. We need your help in getting the word out to mothers able to donate. The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at P/SL Neonatologists call mothers milk liquid gold because it is often life saving medicine for our babies in the Neonate Intensive Care Unit (NICU). www.milkbankcolorado.com 877-458-5503
