March of Dimes Iowa

THE STORY:

On March 8th, over 3 and a half months early, we welcomed our daughter, Eloise *Ella* into our family.  She weighed just 1 lb., 12oz.  She was given the very best care at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics by all of her doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners.  Despite her prematurity and Pulmonary Hypertension, Ella hit many of the same milestones of healthy babies.  She loved to play and engage with the people that were lucky share her days. The March of Dimes played an important role in her daily care, as she benefited from multiple rounds of surfactant, and daily nitric oxide- two things developed through March of Dimes research funding.  She blessed us with 18 wonderful months before passing away due to her Pulmonary Hypertension.

Ella taught us more in those 18 months than we could have ever imagined.  We are lucky to have had the opportunity to love her.  We may not understand or know why this happened, but we do know one thing- she made a difference in the many lives she touched during her short life.  We are blessed to be her parents. We participate in March for Babies in her honor. Please join us in supporting the March of Dimes to give all babies a healthy start.

We're not ready to stop fundraising this year in honor of Ella. While our March for Babies campaign was a huge success, we've been given the honor of presenting a gift at the Signature Chef's Auction on November 5th for Ella and Ella's Crew. Your support helps us ensure that more funding and research will help so many more babies.
