UAMS holiday cards feature tiniest babies 

Press Release

UAMS Medical Center

LITTLE ROCK — Holiday cards and note cards featuring some of the tiniest patients at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) are on sale for the first time ever.

The cards, which feature photographs of infants treated in the UAMS neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), are available for $10 for a pack of 10. Five designs are available — three include a holiday greeting, and two are blank. Each pack features one design. Photographs were taken by Little Rock photographer Amy Davenport, who donated her services to the project.

Cards can be viewed at www.uams.edu/holidaycards. An order form is available online, and orders can be placed by mail, fax, or by calling (501) 603-1255. Payment can be made by Visa, Mastercard, Discover, cash or check. A shipping cost of 50 cents or less per pack will be added to each order of less than 30 packs. Cards also will be available for purchase in the UAMS Medical Center gift shop and the Arkansas Cancer Research Center gift shop, both located on the UAMS campus, beginning Nov. 20.

All proceeds will be used to provide support services to families of infants in the UAMS NICU. The UAMS NICU provides state-of-the-art care for many of Arkansas’ tiniest infants — some weighing less than two pounds and requiring hospitalization for weeks or months.
