As a Topgolf Fore Families supporter, you will help strengthen all March of Dimes mission initiatives including the critical NICU Family Support® program. In partnership with hospitals across the country, this program educates NICU staff and empowers, educates and supports families through evidence-based programs and a variety of digital and in-person resources while babies are in the NICU and during their transition home. Our programs work with hospitals, NICUs and families to improve the NICU patient and family experience. Thank you for “teeing up” and making a difference "fore families" from coast to coast!


Dan and Allison had, what they would describe as, a fairly normal pregnancy. Allison carried to full term, she was induced and delivered a big beautiful boy Matthew at 8 lbs, 9 oz. Once Matthew arrived, though, things changed quickly. The medical team noticed he had discoloration and difficulty breathing. Within 24 hours, the baby was transported in Angel II to another hospital because of the resources available at their NICU. They determined that Matthew was born with pneumothorax, a condition that occurs when air leaks into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. Matthew spent three weeks in the NICU where he received supplemental oxygen therapy to speed up air reabsorption and lung expansion.

During their time in the NICU, Dan and Allison learned about March of Dimes and the NICU Family Support Program.

"March of Dimes volunteers were always available for support, as well as holding time with our son if family members were not available to be in the NICU for love and comfort. There were so many other babies in the NICU who never had any visitors...the only interaction as from nurses and MArch of Dimes volunteers."
~Dan Prudhomme, Mission Dad and Topgolf Fore Families Chair

Today, Matthew is a healthy 19-year-old who just finished his freshman year of college where he plays football!
