My name is Nichole Hajtovik Bland. I was born May 11, 1977. I was one of Akron Children's NICU preemies at 26 wks. I'm now married, have 2 boys and going to college in the medical field. I want to say thank you all for helping me stay alive and for me to move forward in life. Thank you very much. I'm so blessed for all of your support and my parents Glenn and Robin.
