Carter Lewis

Our overall story is Carter was born unexpectedly early at 32 weeks; I was having a dream pregnancy and actually getting ready to go on one last business trip to Denver! We were rushed to one hospital and they weren’t equipped for such a premature baby so we were Air-Evaced to Banner Desert for an emergency C-section. Carter was 4 lbs 11 oz and there for about 3 weeks. We took him home on an apnea monitor and he did very well over all. We are still so thankful for the great care he received from Dr. Waterkotte and the entire staff. Carter is now a fantastic 15 year old who does very well in school and is active with our fundraising efforts for the March of Dimes. Carter will also be joining the March of Dimes Arizona Youth Leadership Council for 2018-19 which includes high school/college students from throughout the valley that come together to share the March of Dimes mission and support March for Babies. He plays the saxophone and is very, very active...flag football, skiing, surfing and scuba diving! We are so lucky to have this amazing child in our lives. --Dana Lewis
