"Lemmon had a condition called HELLP Syndrome, which required her to have an emergency c-section. Her daughter Kenli was admitted to the NICU and was fed with donor milk until Lemmon's own milk came in. Now, Lemmon is wanting to help other moms. 'It helped me so much,' she said, 'so obviously I want to help any of the other moms that have a premature baby or just need it in general.'" - KMTR Eugene
