Grace Marie Pope entered and left this world on February 28, 2016. She was born almost 18 weeks early after her amniotic sac broke unexpectedly. She was 3 days shy of being able to receive medical intervention that could have saved her life. She was able to breathe on her own for 49 minutes before passing away surrounded by the love of many family members. Her premature birth was unable to be explained. Her loss is one that will not be forgotten.
We walk to help support the March of Dimes research to find explanations and potential cures for babies like Grace that entered this world too early to survive. Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies here in the United States.Please consider making a donation and/or joining our team to help support giving babies the strongest start possible.
We do this to honor Grace.
