Mission 228 was developed shortly after our daughter Linkyn Reischl's passing on March 19th, 2018, after 13 months of influence, inspiration, teaching, and strength. Linkyn's story is so much more than her 6 congenital heart defects. And it's even more than the 228 days she spent in an ICU hospital room. Linkyn's story is one of HOPE. It's a story of how one innocent, speechless baby can bring people closer than they ever thought possible. With the extraordinary amount of time that Linkyn and our family spent in the hospital room, relationships with nurses quickly developed. It was apparent that these relationships were something different. They shaped the day's experiences, emotions, feelings, and outlook for both Linkyn and our family. These relationships became a driving force for optimism and hope. The importance of having a well-rounded, well-skilled nurse that cared for our family as much as Linkyn climbed to the top of the priority list. It was these relationships that were built during the 228 days in an ICU hospital room that led our family to develop Mission 228. This non-profit organization's "Mission" will be to provide prospective nurses the financial opportunity, in the form of a scholarship, to attend nursing school and influence the next generation of families' experiences in a hospital setting by providing exceptional patient and family care.
Mission228 operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit company.
