5/08/22: Premature births affect us all. Join the Walk for Babies May 14th.
on Inspirational Women: Hayley Statema, Manager of Donor Development for March of Dimes in the Puget Sound area provides some infomation about premature births in the US, and in Washington--we are a little better than the national average, but still too many babies are born early. Amy Thorne is a mom who gave birth early to twins. Her son was born slightly more than 1 lb and lived for 34 days; her daughter was just over 1lb and less than a foot long. Miraculously she survived, and her parents and family are committed to helping other families who find themselves in this situation. Amy is the Parent Ambassador for the 2022 Walk taking place Saturday, May 14 at Woodland Park Zoo. Please support with donations and definitely by attending.
