The Dykes Family

The Dykes Family experienced premature birth not once, but twice. Madison born at 26 weeks weighing just 1lb., 7 oz. via a c-section and her parents were given a 50/50 chance for her survival. During her 66-day stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), she experienced respiratory distress, was on a ventilator, received blood transfusions, and jaundice. James was born at 35 weeks weighing 5 lbs., 12 oz. Although James weighed significantly more than his sister weighed and was just 5 weeks away from being full term, his lungs were not fully developed. James spent 10 days in the NICU. The Dykes Family was so unbelievably successful compared to many other stories. They witnessed that first hand while in the NICU by seeing other families who did not have the same outcome. The Dykes Family supports and always will support the mission of March of Dimes because those babies need it so badly.
