WalkAmerica is TOMORROW!

I've been trying to post about donating to the walk, but April has been an insane month!

All of you know my stories, but here's a quick recap:

When I was 26 weeks, 2 days pregnant with Caleb I went to the specialist for regular check-up. The checked my cervix length. It was pretty much gone - it was measuring almost .75 cen. They sent me directly to the hospital. With the help of medicine and strict bedrest, I was able to carry Caleb 4 more days. He was born October 10, 2005 at 26 weeks, 6 days gestation. Research from March of Dimes helped develop the medicines that helped me carry Caleb those 4 extra days. I can't even begin to tell you all the things MOD helped develop that Caleb used during his life.

Story #2: MOD's research helped stop my contractions with Nolan at 32 1/2 weeks. With both babies they gave me a shot to help speed the development of their lungs by one week - again from MOD! I strongly feel that shot is what kept Nolan out of the NICU. MOD also help develop the shots I got weekly with Nolan.

Please donate to WalkAmerica.

I am walking in memory Caleb and in honor of Nolan.
