Our sweet baby girl was born 13 weeks early and weighed only 2 lbs 1 oz. She spent 100 long days in the NICU. Some of the treatments that she received were a result of research done by The March of Dimes. The March of Dimes also provided NICU Family Support and information while she was in the hospital. She is now a happy and healthy nine year old! I am walking for Sydney and her little brother and sister (who were born full-term thanks to March of Dimes research, therapies, and treatment). I'm also walking for all babies. I was very excited to be a part of the first March for Babies and am excited to participate for the seventh year in a row! The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start. Please help us support this great cause in honor of Sydney and all of her preemie buddies. Every dime counts!. You can donate online and know that your money is going to support a great cause. Thank you for your help!
