Meet the Board

"No man is more important than The Team. No coach is more important than The Team. The Team, The Team, The Team, and if we think that way, all of us, everything that you do, you take into consideration what effect does it have on my Team?" -Bo Schembechler


Virginia Castro-Stewart: Co-Founder/Chairman

Virginia shares a passion for the medical field. With over 10 years of Paramedic experience she has been able to understand the shortage of research on Neonatal healthcare & treatments. After the loss of her micro-preemie son Kai she made it her mission to raise awareness  on PreLabour Preterm Rupture of Membranes(PPROM)  and neonatal prophylactic care.  Virginia focuses on providing immediate hospitality to the parents currently in the NICU. She has made it a priority to honor the lives of those preemie babies who fought hard but are no longer with us. Breaking the silence and taboo on infant loss, Virginia encourages those parents who want to talk about their angels to do so freely through their foundations social media page. She openly shares her faith and love for Christ who has gotten her through the unimaginable.
