The Bard family created this foundation in her honor to support some of Evan's passions as a nurse. The EvvGirl NICU webcam project is in almost every NICU hospital in Massachusetts with the hope to put cameras throughout New England hospitals! The project installs webcam cameras in NICU units allowing families of preemies to watch their tiny babies throughout the day and night from any location around the world.
