After Health Scare, Mom Starts Nonprofit To Bring Childcare To “Mommies In Need.”

In 2012, Natalie Boyle gave birth to twin baby girls, but just six weeks later, she found herself facing the health battle of her life: an emergency hysterectomy, ulcerative colitis, colon surgery, and thyroid cancer.

Between all the doctors’ appointments, Natalie found herself relying on nannies to care for her newborn daughters, but soon the financial burden began to take a toll.

Thankfully, Natalie recovered, but as she did, her friend Annie Nace was diagnosed with colon cancer. Natalie knew Annie would need childcare for her two young children so, with the memory of her own recent struggle fresh in her mind, Natalie began fundraising to cover Annie’s nanny expenses. But she wanted to do more.

That’s when Natalie decided to launch a nonprofit to help mothers like Annie: Mommies in Need. Mommies in Need has a team of full time nannies, dedicated to providing healthcare to moms facing cancer and other health problems.

But Natalie wasn’t done there.

In 2018, Annie passed away, and Natalie began plans to launch Mommies in Need’s latest program: Annie’s Place.

Annie’s Place, set to open this fall in Parkland Hospital, is a drop-in facility capable of caring for up to 75 children every day.

At Annie’s Place, mothers will have the peace of knowing their children are being cared for, without the financial burden, so they can focus on getting healthy.

“I’ve seen  the generosity of our families come full circle,” said Natalie. “People who have received services from us then pay it forward to help us fundraise.”

Thank you, Mommies in Need!
