Many of you know about the great work and research that is supported by the March of Dimes. This year, the March of Dimes is celebrating its 75th Anniversary. Founded by Franklin Roosevelt in 1938 to find a cure for Polio, the March of Dimes succeeded in its original mission, and since then has focused on finding the cause of prematurity and elimating birth defects. The March of Dimes is working toward a world in which all babies are born healthy.
All four of our beautiful and miraculous children were born premature. We were lucky to have generally good outcomes, but much of the medical science that kept my babies healthy before and after birth came from research supported by the March of Dimes. We are indebted to the March of Dimes and feel strongly about giving back to this wonderful organization.
With that in mind, our family will be walking in the annual March for Babies event on April 25th. Please consider supporting our fundraising efforts for this important and valuable organization.
Please help by donating or signing up to walk today!
The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
