march of dimes . 2009

every year, my family and i walk for a cause very close to our hearts. the march of dimes has been raising money and awareness to prevent premature birth for over 30 years. this orgazination hits particularly close to home because my sister, nicole has given birth to four premature babies (the earliest being 10 weeks too soon), all of whom had to spend several weeks in the neo-natal intensive care unit. while phillip, joshua, rachel, and jessica have all been able to go home and live fully healthy lives, thousands of other newborns aren't so lucky. in the united states alone, 1 out of every 8 babies is born prematurely. there are many complications that can arise from premature birth and it is the #1 cause of death among newborns. and even though doctors have made amazing advances in caring for premature babies, there is still a lot to be done. our hope in joining the walk is that no family should go through what ours has and if they do, their baby will receive the very best care possible.

"with your support, the march of dimes can continue to fund research and programs to prevent premature birth and other threats to babies' health."
