The 5th Annual Zydeco Marathon is coming up on March 4, 2018. This year's entertainment includes Chubby Carrier and The Bayou Boys.

Patrick Hardy came in to fill us in on the details.

Lafayette General Medical Center sponsors this year's event, and proceeds benefit the NICU Rocks program. “NICU Rocks” is a cuddling program that utilizes volunteers from the Lafayette General Health (LGH) Volunteer Program, mamaRoo® Units, and swings to rock and cuddle infants born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).  It is also geared towards babies whose mother might be in the adult ICU or lives too far away to visit frequently.  The “NicView” camera and stream provides a live view into the baby’s Isolette or bassinet in LGMC’s NICU, and is viewable from any online device, such as a computer, smartphone or tablet. This view can provide peace of mind to the mother or concerned loved ones while allowing all to observe the baby’s daily progress.
