After a baby boy, "Tiny," that Rick Keiser was in the process of adopting passed away from a congenital heart defect last year, he and his wife wanted a way to memorialize the boy’s name.

Because they bonded with the University of California, Davis staff, the two began the process of raising money and holding blood drives to help other children there. They then began the process of starting a nonprofit, tinySmiles, that they hope will help others with children in the intensive care unit.
