March for Babies: Who Will You Celebrate? Who Will You Honor?
We’ve mentioned in previous March of Dimes posts that we will be walking to celebrate the lives of our four miracles: Henry, Brooks, Clark, and Isaac. Fragile lives born 2 months early, who benefited greatly from the diligent research efforts of the March of Dimes organization.
However, we also walk to honor the lives of those who we never had the opportunity to meet. Small lives that made a lasting impact upon our lives and so many others.
We’ll walk to honor…
The lives of Isella and Daniel who were each born after healthy and uneventful pregnancies but lost their lives due to birth defects.
Sweet Audrey Caroline who’s few hours on this earth have touched the lives of thousands across the globe.
The 5 brothers and sisters of Sylas Morrison: Lucia, Bennet, Tryg, Lincoln and Cadence who lost their battle with prematurity just after our boys were born.
The vibrant life of Maddie Spohr who survived over 60 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, but unexpectantly left us before she celebrated her 2nd birthday.
The Spohr’s are also an Ambassador Family for the March of Dimes. Their efforts to honor Maddie’s life by saving others have been astounding. Last year their family team raised over 100 Thousand Dollars in support of the March of Dimes. Here’s more about Maddie’s life and their mission:
We’re walking to honor her life and so many others.
We’re fighting for the lives who have been saved, and those lost. We’re fighting to make a difference. We’re fighting for HOPE.
