Congratulations to Rob and Jessica Dickson on the birth of their son, Atlas Story Dickson born Dec. 13, 2011.

Atlas arrived ten weeks early with a virus called Cytomegalovirus or CMV. He weighed in 1-pound, 14 ounces and was 14-inches long.

They at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Providence Hospital in Everett and Jessica reports that Atlas is improving every day.

Rob works for Ravenhill Construction on San Juan Island and was able to scale back his hours in order to travel south every weekend to help with their daughter, Seven, and visit Atlas every week.

A large insurance deductible for Jess, huge travel expenses for Rob, and missed work for both will add up quickly.

If you’d like to help, contribute to the Atlas Dickson Get Well Fund at Wells Fargo Bank.  Checks may be made out to Atlas Dickson Get Well Fund or to Rob or Jess Dickson.

Mail checks to Wells Fargo Bank, PO Box 189, Friday Harbor WA 98250.
