Parents of Infants and Children with Kernicterus, PICK, is a parent run non-profit on a mission to kick the K.
Understanding our organization means understanding that Jaundice can cause irreperarable harm.
Mismanaged Jaundice caused the K (kernicterus).
This one word forever altered us from “just parents” to:
Parents of Infants and Children with Kernicterus.
PICK is a parent-run nonprofit (501c3) dedicated to education and prevention of kernicterus (KI) as well as support and research for families affected by KI.
In doing this, in illuminating the K, we can move toward being “just parents.” We can kick the K! Will you join us? Tell the world. Jaundice can do that, and it doesn’t have to.
We are small, but our voice is strong. Our entire organization is volunteer only. We are parents struggling to balance life with the K and a strong desire to help the world understand just how seriously jaundice needs to be treated.
Very few know what is at stake until it happens to them.
There is no THEY in this equation…only a WE.
We have an incredible resource in all of the families pouring heart and soul into this very worthy cause!
