Meet our 2020 Ambassador Family



The Cozart Family

In 2009, we were pregnant with our second child, a girl. During routine screening tests, we received some abnormal results. It was later confirmed that our daughter had a serious neural tube defect known as anencephaly. We had never heard of anencephaly and were shocked. This was very unexpected after the healthy birth of our first child. There is no cure or standard treatment for this rare and fatal diagnosis. Camille was born in January at 20 weeks. Losing her was devastating and we were left with a huge hole in our hearts. It is very important to us that our daughter is always remembered. We honor Camille by fundraising and walking in March for Babies every year. It is our hope that by sharing our story, we will raise awareness about birth defects and the work of March of Dimes does to prevent them so that other families will not go through what we did. Thank you for supporting such a worthy cause, Brandon, Sarah, Keegan, Hudson, and Rowan
