BENEFITING: March of Dimes Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2016
Many people know that our son Anthony was born at 25 weeks, which is 15 weeks earlier that he was supposed to. When he was born, he weighed only 1lb 7ozs and was immediately put on life support. Anthony endured open heart surgery at 3 weeks old and another invasive surgery a few months later. He was fed through a feeding tube and was hooked up to breathing machines for the first 3 months of his life. But even though he had quite a tough start, today he is a healthy, happy, spirited 2 year old who makes us laugh every single day. And we credit his health advancements in part to the miraculous research that the March of Dimes does every year. Please help support our cause so that no other babies have to go through the same challenges that Anthony did. Thank you!
