Why I walk

Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick.

Our twin girls were born 9.5 weeks early due to complications from Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome. Charis weighed only 1 lb 10 oz at birth and spent 12 weeks in the NICU. Thankfully, other than some feeding issues, she is doing great and recently came home from the hospital. Unfortunately, our Kathryn had severe hydrops (extreme fluid buildup/edema) and they could not stop the buildup. As a result, she went into heart failure. She was unable to overcome this and passed away after only 51 hours.

My goal is to do what I can in my life to support the research and efforts to help change future outcomes for similar situations. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to help raise money for research to help premature babies and help cure babies like Kathryn. I know you care, too. That's why I'm asking you to join us. It's easy: just click the join this team button. If you can't walk with us, please help by donating to our team. You can do so right on this page. Thank you for helping us 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.

Fundraising goal: $5,000
