Our Millie is hardly a baby anymore – she’s a 9 year old 3rd Grader who loves school, all things sea and ocean, polar bears and penguins, ultimate frisbee and ballet. But – she would never be where she is today without the research and support from the March of Dimes.
Millie, born at just 26 weeks and 2lbs, is a testament to the impact of the March of Dimes’ funded research and fight to improve the lives of preemies.
Since Millie’s birth, TeamMillie has raised well over $95,000 for the March of Dimes – and those funds have gone to fund important research and also fund important parent-coping programs. Our goal is $10,000 in 2018 to commemmorate our 10th March for Babies - but we need your help!
PS – the March of Dimes has done amazing things to increase the survival rates and quality of life for preemies, but there is much to be done. Very little is known about the causes of prematurity and this is critical to finding ways to prevent it! The March of Dimes supports the necessary research to ensure all babies are born healthy AND does great work in supporting the families for those that are not.
