March of Dimes, March for Babies. Adam and Neesha Bremmeyer tell us of the premature birth of Mila-- born 16 weeks early, weighing just 1 lb. 7 oz. Because of all the work of the March of Dimes, the NICU is a haven for premies, and Mila spent the early weeks of her life there, about 3-1/2 months. Home was in Chelan, and the family crossed the mountains to Seattle regularly to be with their child, putting 7000 or more miles on their vehicles. 13 months later, Mila is thriving and enjoying her young life. The family is grateful, and invites us to the March for Babies. In Seattle it's Saturday, May 4, at Seattle Center, Fisher Pavilion. Register at 8am, or on line anytime! These funds support families, and fund research. Walks also are happening in Tacoma, and in the Everett area. Or join in virtually anytime.
Teri Yoder, Exec Director of the March of Dimes provides some history about the work of the March of Dimes.
