We interrupt this blog for a public service announcement

A family member on bedrest in the hopes of lengthening her pregnancy.  A friend who spent days in the hospital’s NICU with her premature infant, waiting for the day she could bring her baby home.  News of a devastating pregnancy or newborn loss from someone we know and love.

The fact is each and every one of our lives has been touched by premature birth.  Since 1990, the number of preterm babies has climbed more than twenty percent and is the leading cause of death for newborn infants today.  That’s why Rich serves on the local March of Dimes board of directors, and why I am excited to be a part of this “first” March for Babies.

On Saturday, April 26th we’ll be walking alongside 1000 other walkers to raise money for this important cause.  The March of Dimes has changed the name of their annual fundraising walk from Walk America to March for Babies to remind us exactly who we are walking for – all babies.  We’ve started a team – with Rich’s company (FE&C) as the team name.

In addition, I’d love to hear your personal stories of how prematurity has affected your life.  Post one or send it to me, and I’ll post it here.  Thank you for making a difference in every baby’s life.

Richard and Kristina French
