Mercyhealth participating in Kangaroo-A-Thon campaign

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Mercyhealth is taking part in a worldwide campaign all for a good cause.

Its participating in a Kangaroo-A-Thon. Kangaroo Care is holding your baby and getting important skin-to-skin contact.

It's especially important for babies in the NICU to bond with their parents.

"I think it's helpful to let them know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel and that life goes on and you'll make it through this," said NICU Family Advisory Council Member Jennifer Guymon. 

In two weeks, Mercyhealth will tally the number of hours logged with a big celebration.
