Right now, babies need all the help they can get. Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies here in the United States.
Why I walk
I’m walking because we had 2 premature babies and thanks to the advancement of technology and the TLC of the George Washington University Hospital NICU we have 2 healthy babies. Our 2nd born son was extremely premature, he was born 22 weeks and 6 days gestation, weighing only 465 grams, just barely a pound and he had to stay in the NICU for 4 months. Our baby girl was born at 33 weeks and 3 days gestation and she had to stay in the NICU for a week! Both times were trying times for us! We had 2 success stories and we are truly blessed! She we walk to support the cause and because we are so thankful!
We are walking in March for Babies to get the message out about this terrible problem and you can help. Please make a secure donation to help me reach my goal. Together we can help the March of Dimes fight prematurity so more babies can get the strongest start possible.
