March of Dimes is a cause very near and dear to my heart. I will be walking in the March for Babies walk on April 17, 2010.
Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. I'm walking in March for Babies because I want to do something about this. And I need your help.
In May 2009, my twin daughter and son, Maya and Maxwell, were born at 36 weeks and 2 days. Maya weighed 5 lbs 10 oz. and Maxwell weighed 4 lbs 10 oz. I was fortunate to have the best prenatal care, but many women do not have this opportunity. Sometimes, even with the best prenatal care, babies are still born too small or too early. But every baby deserves the best chance, and that is why I am walking!
Maya and Maxwell doubled their weight quickly and are now becoming active toddlers. I'm excited to walk with them for March of Dimes!
