March of Dimes 2010


If every follower (75 total) would make a small donation to the March of Dimes (75 x $5) then our blog would have been responsible for raising 20% of our total goal!!

Jeremy and I are honored to serve as the Northwest Alabama March of Dimes Ambassador Family. We have spoken at several events and will lead the Walk for Babies in Florence on April 24th! Join our team (Team Lizzy Ann) or make a 1 time donation to our team and help us reach our goal!!

March of Dimes works to....

1. Prevent premature birth
2. Prevent birth defects
3. End infant mortality

We experienced....

1. Lizzy Ann's birth at 33 weeks and 5 days (6 weeks too early and would be dangerous even for a very healthy pregnancy)
2. a rare diagnosis of a major birth defect that was labeled a "terminal abnormality"
3. the stillbirth of our first born child

If these above reasons do not move you to support the March of Dimes, then I do not know what else I could say or do to convince you that the MOD is a worthwhile organization. Jeremy and I NEVER want another family to experience what we went through (even 1 of the 3 devastating effects listed above is too much to consider).

Please open your hearts (and your wallets) and give what you feel is appropriate but please give.

In honor of a child that was born too early but is now healthy......
In memory of a baby gone too soon.......
In hopes that no family experiences the crippling loss of a child.

Thank you all for loving us and supporting our efforts with the March of Dimes!!

-Jeremy & Johnna (& Lizzy Ann)
