According to USA Today, Palmer’s son Truett, born earlier this year, is unable to nurse because of a congenital heart defect. However, that hasn’t stopped his mom from pumping every day since he was born.
“I have two other boys,” Palmer said. “I’ve always had an oversupply. When I first had Truett, I was pumping 16 to 20 ounces per pump. All of that milk was going straight to the freezer.”
Pregnancy care center Guiding Star Mid-Missouri packed the frozen milk in a deep freezer with long-distance ice packs into a truck and drove it to small towns in Montgomery County, Texas for specific moms in need.
