Preemie RSV Petitiion
« on: August 21, 2010 at 01:07 PM »
Just asking that you look this over.
I received this via a website that I frequent that offers support to Parents of Preemies,
Deb Discenza, the person starting the petition, founded and published Preemie Magazine from 2005-2007. She is now a co-founder of PreemieWorld ( and the author of the new book "The Preemie Parent's Survival Guide to the NICU."

The request:
We have an urgent need to get out this petition and get it signed by as MANY parents of preemies and relatives and friends of preemies as possible.

In a nutshell, there is a change in the recommendation of the RSV Prophylaxis for preemies and it is narrowing the window of opportunity for babies born at 32-35 weeks from getting the prophylaxis at all.

PLEASE read and sign this petition and PASS IT ON. We need SUPER VIRAL activity on this ASAP.
These signatures will be presented at the CDC meeting in October by Deb as the representation of the preemie community at large. Please help! Thank you!

Thanks so much everyone!!!!
Please share with anyone else who might have an interest & be willing to sign!
