SUPPORT THE MISSION

Brady and Gracie were born at 27 weeks Brady weighed 1 pound 9 ounces and Gracie 1 pound 13 ounces. They were in the NICU at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis for 4 months. During that time we went through many ups and downs and finally at 4 months old were able to take the home from the hospital. They just turned 11 at the end of May and are doing awesome.
 
   
 
It was very hard for us to imagine when they were first born that we would even get to their first birthday much less their 11th! We are so very thankful to the March of Dimes for all the research they fund for premature births. Without them we may not be where we are today!

The Mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. As the leading volunteer health organization dedicated to saving babies our goal is to help all women have healthier babies.

Premature birth is the leading killer of newborns and a major cause of long-term health problems. No one knows what causes half of all premature births, but scientific research is closing the gap. With your support we can work toward the day when every baby has a healthy start in life. No baby should begin life fighting to keep it.
