Meet Elijah

Born early at 25 weeks and 1 day in 2002, weighing just over 1 pound and measuring 11 inches long, Elijah Jackson spent 7 months in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU). He pulled through after surgery to close a duct between his heart and lungs, a tracheotomy and a procedure to correct reflux disease. He also received surfactant therapy, developed in part with funding from the March of Dimes, to strengthen his tiny lungs. When he left the hospital, he needed a ventilator and oxygen for 2 more years. Today, Elijah is a happy, healthy 12-year-old boy who enjoys school and is an avid sports fan. He is serving as the 2015 National Ambassador with his parents, Elise and Todd Jackson.
