March of Dimes Suwanne Valley


Three days after finding out I had pre-eclampsia Isabella Grace Young was born at 31 weeks gestation, 9 weeks early! From the moment she entered this world weighing 2 lbs. 12 ounces, she was a fighter. I have never seen such a small little baby hooked up to  so many tubes and machines. With every alarm, and beep of the machines our heart would drop, hoping for the best but anticipating the worst, knowing that our God had a master plan for every event in our lives.

For three months Bella struggled in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit fighting for her life so she could get strong enough to come home and join our family. So many caring doctors and nurses provided encouragement, as well as excellent care, and without the March of Dimes research, the development of NICU's across the country, Surfactant to help Bella's lungs develop, the Kangaroo method of embracing our baby, so many other discoveries that I am sure is what finally let us take Bella home. We have no doubts without this research and care we would not have Bella today.

Bella is now 8 years old, strong, vibrant, and passionate little girl with a heart for the March of Dimes who gave her a start in life! Bella has a personal goal of getting 45 people( one per day she spent in the NICU) to donate $100 to help FUND THE MISSION. Thank you for your consideration in making this donation in honor of Bella!
