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 -- something that wouldn't have happened without March of Dimes-funded research that developed surfactant therapy. He's now a healthy 4-year-old.

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.

Please support my walk, join our team or create a team of your own:
