Theresa White
Crisis Line Coordinator
 
Theresa has been involved with Neo-Fight since 1995, one year after her second child was born. Will arrived 3 months early @ 2 lbs. 5 oz. and 14 1/4" long. Amongst many other problems, his main obstacle was that he could not breathe on his own leading to a 3 month stay at Riley Hospital. Will had many obstacles that he overcame and he is now a healthy boy with Autism. Being active in Neo-Fight was one way Theresa decided she could help others who were going through their own neonatal crisis. Theresa is an active Neo-Fight Listener, and has been Board Secretary. She is currently the Crisis Line Coordinator. Theresa feels Neo-Fight is different than most support groups in that it promotes healing and getting past the crisis that you have experienced. 

Kathleen Smith
Secretary
 
Kathleen has been involved with Neo-Fight, since the loss of her son, Charles, in 1999.  She called Neo-Fight for support shortly after losing Charles.  Current President, Michie Sebree, called Kathleen within ten minutes of paging the crisis line at a time when she was desperate to talk with another parent that understood such heartache.  In 2000, Kathleen completed training to become a Neo-Fight Listener and trained volunteer.  She has since helped Neo-Fight in various areas of peer mentor support.  Kathleen is honored to continue serving Neo-Fight as Secretary, assist our communities and most of all support families experiencing a perinatal crisis.
