Anyone who has had a healthy pregnancy and child can appreciate the gift that is their baby. When I began working at a children's hospital it made me appreciate my 9 months of being uncomfortable and tired and my few hours of labor so much more. To see babies fighting against diseases that grown ups can't even pronounce or to watch a mother plead with God and His angles to spare the life of their little one born just a few years ago, made me want to do something more to help. Being the lab rat that I am I knew that a major road to helping these little ones and their families is through research and this is how I got involved with the March of Dimes March for Babies campaign.
Jones Squad and walk to help these babies. We walk in the memory of the little troopers who went home to be with the angles early, in honor of those fighting right now, and in thanks for the precious lives of our little ones who make us smile everyday.
So if you want to bring your little one out with Chunks and me in May sign up and even if you can't be there make a donation to help us reach our goal for the little ones. For those that do choose to sign up, send me your info and t-shirt sizes for you and your little ones so we can get these cute t-shirts we're creating!! If there is a March for the Babies campaign in your area I encourage you to sign up as well and help out in your own area, they have events going on all the time find out how you can do your part!
