The Araneo Family

Like many expectant parents Shane and Brittany Araneo were excited about starting and growing their family. But then their baby, Evans Kane Araneo, was born fighting for his life. There was a (true) knot in his umbilical cord that led to severely underdeveloped lungs. Then, upon birth, air leaked into the space between Kane’s lungs and chest wall (pneumothorax). It was a difficult time for the Araneo family. Kane faced many challenges including chest tubes, feeding tubes and being put on a ventilator. Thankfully, after 14 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Kane was finally able to come home. In many ways, Kane is a typical little boy. He loves to watch his big brother, Bryce, and snuggle time with mommy and daddy. But because of his premature lungs, Kane has developed many colds in his 3 short months of life. Kane’s parents, Shane and Brittany, know the significant role that the March of Dimes research played in helping him grow and thrive. As the 2018 COLLETON MARCH FOR BABIES Ambassador Family they will share their story and help raise awareness of premature birth and birth defects. They hope their story can provide promise for other families and help the March of Dimes continue fighting for healthy families.
