"I think premature people …...kind of have this sense of … just special", Melissa Hadley, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse describes. Being born prematurely herself, Melissa now uses her story to empower other families and patients. Simultaneously, Thea Woehr, a 14-year-old premature girl grapples with what it means to be premature and all that it entails while finding growth and empowerment along the way.
