Ambassador Family

 

 

David Family

Like many expectant parents, Anthony and Stacy were excited about growing their family. That changed when their baby, Alexander, arrived at only 26 weeks, weighing just 1 pound, 15 ounces. Just 36 hours after he was born, he suffered from 2 brain bleeds and spent his first 18 weeks fighting for his life in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU). It was a difficult time for the David family. The NICU can be frightening and overwhelming for parents, especially when they must leave each night without their baby. After 126 days in the NICU, Alexander was finally able to come home. Today, he is two years old and is a sweet, strong, smart and silly toddler that loves to laugh and play with his big brother, AJ. He loves to read books, sing and count! Like Alexander, more than 380,000 babies are born prematurely in the United States each year. For more than 80 years, March of Dimes has empowered families with programs, knowledge, tools and we won’t stop until every mom, and baby gets the best possible start. “Serving as an ambassador family and sharing our story is a way to show our gratitude for the work of March of Dimes that has helped so many babies like Alexander,” says Anthony, “We support March of Dimes as they help get us closer to a world where no mom or dad has to experience what we did.”
