More than half a million babies are born prematurely each year. Premature birth is the number one killer of newborns. Babies who survive prematurity could potentially be disabled for life. The March of Dimes is leading a national effort to save babies from premature birth by funding research to find the causes and by supporting local programs for families with a baby in intensive care. You can help save babies from the dangers of premature birth by taking action at The March of Dimes.
That’s why the March of Dimes has designated November as Prematurity Awareness Month. During November and any time during the year, you can help the March of Dimes fight premature birth.
TAKE ACTION — JOIN THE MARCH OF DIMES — Decades ago, millions of dimes from concerned Americans helped us defeat polio. Today, we need all the change you can spare to fight an even bigger challenge—premature birth. Join the MARCH OF DIMES and help save babies by donating your spare change at a Coinstar center near you. Visit www.marchofdimes.com for more information.
Many of you know that our children spent some time in the NICU after they were born. Those days and weeks were the toughest of my life. Thankfully the March of Dimes is there to help the babies that are born too early!
