We have formed a March for Babies Team to help the March of Dimes work towards the day when all babies are born healthy. We are writing today to ask you to join us!
We are forming our team in honor of Molly who was born 13 weeks too soon. By sharing our story, we hope to remind everyone of the urgency of the mission of the March of Dimes and inspire our friends and family to join our team.
Ours is not the only story of frightening, touch-and-go days in neonatal intensive care with our baby. Premature birth touches half a million babies and their families every year. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have disabilities. Birth defects pose another serious threat – taking the lives of many babies and cause lifelong disabilities for thousands more. So it’s important for us to help the March of Dimes help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.
We are doing just that by participating in March for Babies as Team Molly’s Mission. No one is working harder than the March of Dimes to understand the causes of prematurity and birth defects. March for Babies offers hope by raising funds for lifesaving research, education and innovative programs that offer hope for preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects.

One day all babies will be born healthy. But we’ll have to walk to get there! Thank you for your help.
