I am walking in the March for Babies this coming new year in celebration of my son, Bronx. He was born prematurely at 35 weeks due to unknown causes and he needed extra medical care at birth. It was heartbreaking watching him struggle that first few days, but thankfully he made a quick and complete recovery.
Sadly, we know that some families are not as lucky as we are.
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. Our team is walking in March for Babies because we want to do something about this. I know you care, too. That's why I'm asking you to join us. It's easy: just click the picture of Bronx on the sidebar, or click the logo at the bottom of this post.
If you can't walk with us, please help by donating to our team. Thank you for helping us give all babies a healthy start!
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
As the mother of a premature infant, I am extremely passionate about this cause. I urge everyone to please support me. If you have had a premature infant in your life, you know how important this is. And those who have been fortunate enough to be blessed with a healthy infant, give thanks and help us fight for those babies who have not been as lucky.
