Cortney Hanks is from Chambersburg, PA and is married the love of her life, Brian. She followed Brian all over the United States as he pursued becoming a pilot for the US Army. She is currently a business owner but more importantly, a mom to 2 beautiful little boys. Max and Raleigh.
Cortney had a normal pregnancy and delivery with Max; however, with Raleigh, she had more issues. At 12 weeks she was diagnosed with Intrahepatic Cholestasis which can lead to a stillbirth if not monitored. She knew at the diagnosis that the baby would be delivered at 36 weeks. She had an easy pregnancy, even with all of the doctor visits to check on the baby. She knew the risks associated with being born at 36 weeks but never thought any of them would happen. On Oct.18th, 2017, they welcomed Raleigh into the world after a short hug and kiss, he was whisked off to the NICU for respiratory distress. He stayed in the NICU for 16 days before he was able to come home. They spent lots of time in prayer for the healing and growth of their precious new baby. She held close to Proverbs 31:25 “She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” There were many times she wanted to break down but knew there was a greater plan for Raleigh and that she needed to be strong for him.
Cortney received support and love from Eve’s Victory during their NICU stay and it drove her to want to give back. She now has a desire to be there for other moms and babies who are going through the same situation. She is eager to grow the support system in PA and to be a lifeline to families all over the country.

KateLynne is a born and raised Pennsylvanian. She met her husband, Wesley, at a local tractor pull at the community fair and they have been crazy in love ever since.
KateLynne is currently a mother to her daughter, Paisley, as well as miracle baby, Kimber, who was born at just 25 weeks gestation due to severe growth restriction and a decreasing heart rate. At birth, Kimber only weighed 13.9 ounces and had a long NICU stay ahead of her. The NICU life was hard with so many unknowns from a baby being born so early and small. KateLynne and her husband were surrounded by support and prayer and after 129 days in the NICU, they were able to bring home their precious miracle from God. Today, Kimber is a happy and healthy toddler and truly shows what God is capable of doing.
During their NICU stay, the family was gifted a care package from Eve’s Victory. Through this kind gesture, KateLynne realized how many people out there truly care for others in their types of situations and drove her to want to continue to give back to other families going through what they did. KateLynne is ecstatic to be working with Eve’s Victory to spread God’s love to families going through such hard times.
Jessica, a Pennsylvania native, relocated to South Florida in June 2009 where she met her husband, Matt, in 2011. By May 2013, they were married. After 2 and a half years of marriage, they found out they were expecting a child and would be due in February 2016. After 6 weeks of pregnancy, Jessica learned that she had miscarried the baby. Heartbroken but fully aware of God's mercy, promises, and power, Jessica and Matt knew that God would bless them with another child. After five months of fervent prayer and worship, they found out they were expecting their rainbow baby, Keegan. Keegan was born at 37 weeks in June 2016. The day after delivery, Keegan was sent to the NICU at St. Mary's Hospital where he spent 12 days. Keegan, to this day, is being monitored for kidney re-flux.
Two miscarriages later and a NICU stay, Jessica prayed that God would redeem her pain and birth something new from it. In the middle of prayer one morning, God put NICU Care Packages on her heart, and she couldn't wait to share it with her friend, Katie, who had also experienced the same heartache as her. Together they founded Eve's Victory.
Jessica has made it her mission to come alongside and encourage other women walking through the same battles that she once faced and has now conquered, not by her own strength but with the help of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
