March for Babies

I wanted to let everyone know about this amazing event that happens throughout the country. I know everyone has heard of the March of Dimes. I had always thought this charity works with premature babies only. Well, now that I am involved I have learned that the March of Dimes encouraged all doctors and insurance companies to allow the 20 week ultrasound. So if you have ever had an ultrasound, you have been touched by the MOD. This charity also helps moms get the prenatal vitamins they need and lobbied for the polo vaccine years ago. The MOD also provides support for moms of premature babies and their families. The MOD is constantly working on ways to allow all babies to be born healthy. My son, Grant was not only premature but had a serious birth defect.
As you can see from our photos we participated in the Walk for Babies in May 9th in Maysville, KY. I had over 50 wonderful people on my team and we raised close to $4000! I was so proud of everyone and all we did for babies. There are walks all over the country, so I encourage you to get involved by starting a team or just walking! Check out their website or email me and I will give you any information you need!!
