Cheri Price was just 23 weeks pregnant when her daughter Hailie was prematurely born.
Hailie weighed a mere 1 pound 2 ounces on the day of her birth. Her skin had still not developed pigmentation, making her brain and veins visible through her skin.
For the first seven minutes for her life, Hailie could not breathe, but was eventually resuscitated. Days later, one of her lungs collapsed. It would be 18 days before her parents Cheri, 22, and Timothy Dillon, 32, could hold their daughter.
Hailie's parents spent the next three months at the James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough on England's northeast coast.
