Important Update

Our March for Babies celebration is still on, but it looks a little different! We are rapidly preparing for a new, virtualized event that will be fun and engaging for everyone.

Meet the Krugers

Brad and Toni are parents of two children, Wyatt and Kourtney. They are one family with two very different NICU stories. 26 weeks into Toni’s first pregnancy, she developed the most severe form of HELLP Syndrome and placenta previa – pregnancy complications that nearly took her life. Wyatt was born 14 weeks early by emergency c-section. His lungs did not develop enough and he passed after three days with his family. As Toni held Wyatt, she whispered to him she would do whatever she could to keep his name going. Toni formed a March for Babies team in his honor and joined the Family Teams Committee, where she could meet others with whom she could relate. Two years later, Toni and Brad were thrilled to be pregnant again. 37 weeks into her pregnancy, Toni’s blood pressure started to climb. Taking no chances, the medical team delivered, Kourtney, by c-section. Born 3 weeks early, Kourtney had some respiratory difficulties. She spent 11 days in the NICU. Kourtney is now a thriving two-year-old. Having a loss can feel so dark so lonely -- like you just don’t belong. Having your baby in the NICU is heart wrenching and unpredictable. March of Dimes has helped the Krugers feel a part of something – a community that has helped the family give back, be with people that they can relate to, help other families with loss, pregnancy complications and premature birth. Brad & Toni honor Wyatt and their rainbow baby, Kourtney, by supporting March of Dimes.
