MORGANTOWN -

A life-changing event has spurred a Garret County, Maryland man to give back to the neonatal intensive care unit in West Virginia University Children's Hospital.

Bill German and his wife spent 6-days in the NICU at West Virginia University Children's Hospital when the couple's first child Rilynn was born. 

Six days was long enough for the couple to snap-off more than 250 photos, trying to enjoy the little time they had with their baby girl who died from a rare genetic disorder.

The German's said after "the dust settled" they realized they wanted to help others in the same situation they were. From there they began Broken Roads Associates, a non-profit organization that helps other families who spend time in the NICU.

In three years, the non-profit has donated more then 3,000 blankets to the NICU, and it was back in Morgantown Wednesday donating more blankets and hats for newborns.

"It makes me feel warm inside and feels fantastic. We actually also invited some other families to be with us today so I can help them have a warm comfortable feeling. I have a surprise for them," German said.

The non-profit organization gave several children's hospital families gift cards for food and gas.
