Mission Statement

The mission of Neo-Fight, Inc. is to ensure that support is available to any family who:

  • Is going through a difficult pregnancy
  • Has lost a baby through miscarriage or stillbirth
  • Has a premature or critically ill newborn
  • Has delivered an infant with birth defects
  • Has experienced the death of a child shortly after birth

Description

In 1976, Charlotte Deeter and Cindi Hankins met in a local Indianapolis hospital, where both had been hospitalized for unexpected pregnancy complications. After the premature (but healthy) births of their two children in February 1976, the women stayed friends. Even more so, they continued to support each other through their children's NICU stays. They realized the value of parents supporting parents, and within a few months, Neo-Fight was formed. Garage sales, flower sales, recruiting other families, plus help from the Neonatal nursery staff helped to get Neo-Fight established in Indianapolis. Soon, Neo-fight became the first parent support group in the United States to have non-professionals working in the NICU supporting parents with babies in special care. People began to hear about Neo-Fight and wanted to get involved, and soon a new parent support program called Listener Training began and continues to this day!
