2017 Rochester Ambassador Liam Lighthouse

 
In 2015, Beth and Greg Lighthouse were eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child. Beth’s pregnancy appeared to be progressing normally, until, at 34 weeks, Liam Gregory, was born 6 weeks early, weighing just 4 pounds, 8 ounces. The morning of June 23rd Beth woke up feeling differently and was sent to the hospital. Liam's heart rate was dropping and it soon became clear for the safety of mom and baby that Liam would be delivered early. Liam spent 36 hours in the Special Care Nursery under close monitoring. As a result of his premature birth, Liam has battled with severe respiratory illnesses and has been on a nebulizer daily for most of his young life. Liam will be turning two this year and the Lighthouse family knows the significant role that March of Dimes research played in helping Liam get this far. The Lighthouse family happily welcomed Liam’s little sister, Mila, just this year. Beth went through much more additional screening and testing with this pregnancy, and little Mila was born healthy and full term. As the 2017 Rochester Ambassador Family, they will share their story to raise awareness of premature birth and help the March of Dimes to reach the day when all babies are born strong and healthy.
