Eliza Grace was born on March 15, 2006, at 26 weeks, 4 days, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and measuring just 11.5 inches long. She is the light of my soul and this is the story of our life in the big city.

Prematurity Awareness Day



Will you fight for her?






Will you fight so that no parent ever has to know what RDS, BPD, CLD, ROP, AOP, NEC, PDA, sepsis, apnea, bradycardia, PHT and PIE are?

Will you fight so that no baby has to undergo 14 to 20 invasive and painful procedures a day just to stay alive?

Will you fight so that no child has over 100 doctor visits in her first three years of life because she was born prematurely?

Will you fight so that no child has over 3000 hours of therapy in her first three years of life because she was born prematurity?

Will you fight to help end premature birth?

Will you?

If you want to join the fight, reach into you pocket today and send one dollar to the March of Dimes today.

Or better yet, how about donating the cost of that vente latte you think you just can't live without?
