    Program Information

    Prolacta Bioscience® is a life science company dedicated to improving quality of life by Advancing the Science of Human Milk™. Prolacta is the first and only company to provide a commercially available human milk fortifier made from 100% human milk for premature and critically ill infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

    Prolacta hopes to recognize mothers across the USA who donate their excess breast milk to help premature and critically ill infants in the NICU. To show their appreciation, Prolacta created the HelpingHands Milk Bank. Prolacta has pledged to contribute $1 to Susan G. Komen for each ounce of qualified human breast milk donated through the HelpingHands Milk Bank. Prolacta chose Komen as the recipient of their financial contribution because studies show a correlation between breastfeeding and a reduction in a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.
