Why I walk

This is my - and my team's - 11th year of marching for babies.

The March of Dimes is a cause that is near and dear to my heart, because my babies were born 14 weeks early, and because I delivered three babies, but am raising only two.

Each of my babies weighed less than 2lbs at birth, and one of them weighed in at a teeny tiny 1lb 3oz. Although we lost our baby girl, our boys survived and we have the talented NICU staff, strength of our little warriors, and the research funded by the March of Dimes to thank for our our boys pulling through. They were in the NICU for 14 weeks and 19 weeks - it's a long time, and to us, it was a lifetime.

I walk the March for Babies because I am in awe of my boys and how far they have come on a road they never should have had to travel. I walk in honor of my baby girl - not a day goes by that I don't think about her. I walk for, and with, her brothers, who carry her spirit in them. And I walk to save babies.

Do something really special and help me save babies by donating or - better yet - joining our team!

Thank you so much!
