2016 National Ambassador Ismael Torres Castrodad

 
Isamari Castrodad had a healthy pregnancy until she was hospitalized for a low level of amniotic fluid. Luckily she learned about premature birth from the March of Dimes and asked questions — because after she was anxious enough to get her fluid levels checked again, her son, Ismael, was born by emergency c-section 5 weeks early. Six days after discharge, he developed jaundice and RSV (a serious lung infection) and was treated in the hospital. He had to be rehospitalized with pneumonia and asthma, but today, Ismael is a charming, healthy 13-year-old from Puerto Rico who plays soccer and loves to sing. He and his family will travel around the country to raise awareness of premature birth and encourage moms to confidently ask questions about their health.
