In January, shortly after Jeremy Tyler signed with the Knicks and around the same time he let me do an interview with him, Jeremy’s first child was born 3 months premature. Jeremy’s son, Jeremy Junior, spent months in the hospital fighting for his life, but, fortunately, was allowed to come home to Jeremy and his girlfriend Sukey.
On Saturday, Jeremy will be hosting “A Night of Awareness” to benefit Hailey’s Hope Foundation, a charity that supports families with critically ill babies in the New York area. HHF reaches out to families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, helping pay non-medical costs such as gas, lodging, and meals, and by offering care packages, calling in and checking up on families, educating parents, working with doctors and nurses, and funding clinical research.
Jeremy is hosting this event to bring awareness to the foundation and the alarming number of premature babies being born every day.
The official invitation:
Experience an unforgettable evening with Jeremy Tyler of the New York Knicks and his NBA friends to benefit Hailey’s Hope Foundation.
Join them as they celebrate and raise money for Hailey’s Hope Foundation’s programs that support premature and critically ill babies and their families in New York-area Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs).
