Meet the 2017 Central New York Ambassador Family - The LaValley Family
The LaValley Trio:Lainie, Marnie, and Stevie were born at 30 weeks, 10 weeks premature. After years of infertility, Rebecca and her husband were very excited for their new bundles of joy, but were also fearful of the challenges prematurity could cause. Stevie, Marnie and Lainie spent 6 weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where they learned to breathe, eat and regulate their body temperate – things that come naturally to full term babies.   


The family endured a long journey, but now at 3.5 years old, the girls are strong and healthy! The LaValley Family is joining in the fight against prematurity so that more families can experience the joy of their children’s first birthday.
Every year, 15 million babies are born prematurely worldwide, and 1 million will die before their first birthday. Your gift helps the March of Dimes fund research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. Your generous contribution will also benefit over 19,000 babies born too soon in right here in Central New York. 

Fund the Mission is a great way to support the cause. It is 100% tax deductible and can be pledged before the event or throughout the evening of the event!
