March of Dimes, March For Babies

My cousin Ashley found out she was pregnant with her son, John Avery, in June 2012. She couldn’t have been happier, and I couldn’t have been happier for her. Well, in October her and her mom hit a deer and had a wreck, it was horrible. She went to the hospital in November because she was having contractions. They gave her a shot to stop them and sent her on her way. Later that month, she was back again.. This time only to find out she was in labor with John Avery. John Avery was born 3 months early and weighed 2.5 pounds. He was the smallest, cutest little baby in the world. As of today he weighs 4 pounds and gets to come home in 3 weeks. We are stoked!

The reason I told you this is because when I had my son Maddox in August I found out about March of Dimes. I was always thinking about if I wanted to do it or not. After my cousin’s son was born, I made my final decision. I am trying to raise money for the Pensacola Chapter of March of Dimes and walking with them in May. I would greatly appreciate your donation! Here is the URL to donate at: http://www.marchforbabies.org/Maddoxs_Mommy12

where are you walking??  I am seriously considering as well.. We lost a little girl in July 2011 although she was still born and March of Dimes actually didn't help us what they do for babies that are born prematurely (what they would have helped us with if our daughter was born alive) is AMAZING  

Good luck!!!

We are walking in Pensacola! This is my first time doing this, so i'm nervous I won't reach my goal. But I am excited to be walking.

My mom is going to walk with me this year. My sister likes to do charity events and volunteer, so maybe she will come out and do it with us too. I'm probably going to talk to my mom in doing a family team too. It would be nice.

You shouldn't be worried about raising enough as whatever you raise will be helpful! A few yrs ago, our group raised about $15,000...won't do it again though as the local office wasn't the easiest to work with.

I'm trying to join a team, I don't work right now. So, it's hard for me to join a team.
