On May 31st 2012 my nephew made his debut in the world with an emergency C-section 14 weeks early. He weighed a mere 2 pounds 10 ounces. Our little guy had significant brain hemorrhaging and spent his first 129 days in NICU. They were the longest 129 days imaginable for our family. The March of Dimes funded research gave Joshua a fighting chance at life. With continued support the March of Dimes hopes to put premature births like this in the past forever so that every child has a healthy start to life. Prematurity kills more infants than anything else and with your help we can continue to give babies like Joshua a fighting chance!
