Janet Pickel

Who are the Pickel Preemies?

Our twins were born more than three months early, our daughter weighing 15 ounces, her brother 22 ounces. Our tiny girl Jaina died after two days of kidney disease and infection. Cade spent four bumpy months in the NICU before coming home. He's survived at least 10 surgeries, but now he's a happy, healthy, silly and strong 4-year-old who loves fish sticks, toy cars and jumping up and down.

We walk for the March of Dimes to honor those whose fundraising and research saved our son, and we walk with hope that we'll help fund a cure for what took our daughter. We hope others will benefit from our experience and fundraising and not have to go through what we have.
