The caring and nurturing spirit emblematic of the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. brand is once again being celebrated as its fans have selected Rancho Santa Fe resident Dr. Sean Daneshmand and his non-profit Miracle Babies organization as the latest recipient of its Hometown Heroes program.
For receiving the largest amount of votes in the April/May competition, Bandai Co., Ltd. and Sync Beatz Entertainment will award a $5,000 contribution to Dr. Daneshmand and the San Diego-based group which he founded in 2009. The mission of Miracle Babies is to provide support and financial assistance to families with critically ill newborns in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and to enhance the well-being of women, children and their families through education, prevention and medical care.
As a perinatologist (high-risk obstetrician) working with a great number of brave, hopeful women and their families, “Dr. D.” noticed that many were financially unable to be in the hospital with their babies every day. His efforts have provided over 600 families with financial assistance to pay for living expenses, transportation, medical equipment, prescriptions, baby supplies, and sibling childcare, which allows them to be with their baby while they receive critical care at the facility.
As part of his further commitment to preventing premature births, Dr. D. launched “Healthy Women Healthy Children” this year, an additional Miracle Babies program dedicated to healthy weight management for women before, during and after pregnancy.
