We're walking for Kennedy! She was born at 27/6 weeks and spent 12 weeks and 1 day in the hospital. She developed a serious lung condition, called PIE (Pulmonary Interstitial Emphysema) and was on a ventilator for a month. After that, Kennedy spent another month on c-pap and finally started breathing "room air."
The NICU is the scariest and sweetest place in the world, and miracles happen every day thanks to the March of Dimes and the amazing doctors and nurses. By supporting the March of Dimes' annual March for Babies event, you're helping give the 1 in 10 babies born too soon a chance at a full, healthy life.

Right now, babies need all the help they can get. Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies here in the United States. We’re walking in March for Babies to get the message out about this terrible problem and you can help. Please make a secure donation to help us reach our goal. Together we can help the March of Dimes fight prematurity so more babies can get the strongest start possible.
