BENEFITING: March of Dimes Foundation
My family and I are honored to serve as the Ambassador Family for the 2017 March of Dimes, Signature Chefs Auction. Premature birth the #1 killer of newborns in the United States and each year thousands of babies are born with a birth defect. Events like the Signature Chefs Auction have helped the March of Dimes fund lifesaving research that has impacted immunizations, prenatal surgery, and standard of care treatments such as surfactant therapy to overcome respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in premature infant’s right here in our community. As some of you know, my daughter, Gianna, was born premature at 27 weeks and spent 81 days in the NICU. My family and I are very grateful March of Dimes and we strive to do our part to help give every baby a fighting chance!
