PHOENIX - Wednesday is " Arizona Gives Day " which gives Arizonans a chance to make donations to as many nonprofits as possible in 24 hours.
Feeding Matters is one nonprofit group that benefits from these donations.
When Chastity Wilson gave birth to premature triplets just five months into her pregnancy, she knew she had her work cut out for her.
"We had our triplets at 25 weeks, which is basically four months early, and you don't really have any education about that," she said.
After more than 100 days in the hospital, Isaac, Lydia, and Lucy are all home.
From heating bottles, to changing diapers, it's a full time job caring for the triplets. The new parents soon found Lucy was having issues.
"If she feeds from the bottle, she will vomit what she eats, so she's unable to keep formula down, food down," Chastity's husband, Eric said.
Lucy had terrible reflux, causing her to throw up constantly. It wasn't until they found Feeding Matters they learned they were not alone.
"They educate you about not only different resources, but good questions to ask. They don't question your medical staff, they arm you with questions for your medical staff," Wilson said.
Now, with a feeding tube in place, Lucy receives small amounts of formula around the clock, it's all her tiny tummy can handle.
Her parents get support and guidance from the folks at Feeding Matters.
"I actually am a mom who went through this myself with my own daughter. I've walked in these shoes. One of our primary goals is to make sure these families feel supported and they can talk to somebody who has been through this because I know I felt isolated and alone and didn't know anybody until my daughter was three," the group's director, Chris Linn said.
Feeding Matters is one small nonprofit making a difference one family at a time.
