We all know someone who’s life has been affected by a baby born with a birth defect or a baby who was born prematurely. These precious babies are gifts from God, but even the babies who survive will have a difficult road ahead of them. Both the babies and their families will encounter great challenges on their journey though life.
My sister has recently been met with such a challenge. Though her challenge has been accompanied by loss she is rising above the grief and seeking to help others in need. In less than 2 weeks she will be walking in the 2012 March of Babies. Here is what she has to say….
Friends, family members, and I have been met with the challenges and experiences surrounding a wide range of complications during pregnancy. Although each baby is unique and special, my feeling is the same: healthy babies are a blessing. It is so important that we support research in our communities to ensure our children and their children have healthy, full term babies.
Every year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many life long disabilities. The funds we raise in WalkAmerica support research that saves babies’ lives. Please help these little angels have the best chance of a healthy life.
I’m walking in March for Babies and raising money because I care about healthy babies. I know this cause is important to you, too. Can you help me reach my goal by making a donation to my walk? It’s easy, just click through to my fundraising page.

This is why I’m walking….
The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
I’m sharing my sister’s story and her goal to raise money for The March of Dimes because premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality are not discriminating. Any of us, any one in our family, any one of our friends can be affected.
If you have the means, even small donations add up and will make a difference in the lives of children and families. You can donate here or at the link above.
I can’t thank you enough for your support!
