Why I walk

This is our 6th year at March for Babies!

My son, Liam, was born at 27 weeks and 6 days. At birth Liam only weighed 15 ounces. We spent 101 days in the NICU before being discharged and have cherished every day that we have been able to spend with our little miracle. Liam just turned 5 in October and he has grown so much! We went from being born under a pound to learning how to eat, crawl and walk. Even though our NICU stay is long behind us, we are still faced daily with factors related to his prematurity.

NEW to our team this year is Luke! Luke was born at 27 weeks and 1 day. Luke was born at 1lb 11oz. While he followed in his brothers footsteps being born at 27 weeks, his NICU stay was much shorter. After 66 days we were able to bring Luke home. It was such a blessing he was home by Christmas. He is doing great at home and we are about to start Occupational Therapy and Special Instruction to get him on track with other baby's his age.

Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. I'm walking in March for Babies because I want to do something about this. And I need your help. Please support my walk by either joining us in New Orleans at the March of Dimes event on May 7th in audubon Park and being a part of Team Leaping Liam or consider making a donation. Making a secure donation is easy: just click the 'donate now' button on this page. Thank you for helping me give all babies a healthy start!

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.
