2017 Traverse City Ambassdaor Family

Michael Andrew Mahn was born on May 12, 2015. He was born a few weeks earlier than expected. Due to a difficult delivery, Michael suffered from a rare bleed in his head called a Subgaleal Hemorrhage. He spent the first few hours of his life with an amazing team of doctors and nurses in the NICU at Munson Medical Center. He was then quickly transported to DeVos Children’s Hospital, where Michael spent the next 16 days of his life. "We first heard Michael cry on May 15, when his ventilator was discontinued. Shortly after, I held my son for the first time. We spent days not knowing whether or not our not our baby would live and the sound of his first cry will always be the most beautiful thing I’ve heard. That day was a major turning point for Michael. He began to exceed everyone’s expectations and we became more optimistic about taking him home." Michael came home on May 28, his due date! He is a happy, healthy, smart little boy. He is a superhero, even earning himself the nickname “Super Mahn”. "The research that the March of Dimes has supported for babies is incredible, so many babies have benefitted from them. Our family is happy and excited to support the March of Dimes because they help make sure that babies get the strongest start possible. Please join us and support the March of Dimes to give baby’s everywhere the chance to be born healthy and stay healthy!" - Ashley and Paul Mahn - 2017 Traverse City Ambassador Family
