Heather Spohr

Why I walk

We are honored to be the 2016 Los Angeles Ambassador Family!

Mike and I experienced firsthand the nightmare of having a premature baby, a nightmare that sadly continues for many families even after their baby successfully leaves the NICU. After Madeline's premature birth, Mike and I swore we would do what we could to help other families whose babies faced the same battle. Our resolve only grew after Maddie passed away, and we fervently support the March of Dimes - a wonderful organization that gave us much support in our time of need. Mike and I will be walking in memory of our darling Madeline, and walking with us will be her younger siblings, Annabel and James, who both made it much farther in pregnancy in large part to medical advances championed by the March of Dimes. Thank you so much for your support!

Your gift matters

Funds raised in March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And they will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.

Fundraising goal: $3,000

To the Sphors, I've been reading Heather's blog for several years now, since Annabel was just a baby. I have no idea how I came across it, but I've fallen in love with your whole family, your friends and everything about you. I even keep an eye out for you when I visit my family in San Diego!! Keep up the amazing work you do! Love from Ann Arbor, Cara K. McEachen
