Why we walk

When Kayla was born in an emergency nine weeks early, we had no idea what an impact the March of Dimes would have on our family. She was given surfactant therapy to strengthen her little lungs, and she was taken across town to a special neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) where trained doctors and nurses would care for her for five weeks. We′ve since learned that there was once a time in this country when newborns weren′t even considered to be patients. The attention was focused on the mother alone. But, thanks to the March of Dimes, today there are medical specialists, tiny instruments, research-based treatments and NICUs across the country for helping children like ours. Two years later, our Leslie would live her first 48 days in a NICU. And we live in gratitude for the gift of our daughters and their health. But we also want to help others avoid the pain of prematurity (which is the leading cause of infant death) and protect the lives of mothers. Childbirth should not be life-threatening. The March of Dimes has led our country to solve major medical mysteries before. And, with your help, we can do it again... together.
