My neice was born 10 weeks early 5 years ago. Up until then I never knew anyone who actually had a premature baby. What a long hard road both the parents and baby have to go through. My neice was a fighter and is now a thriving 5 year old. No parent should have to witness such a heart wrenching helpless experience. Nor should any baby have to endure such a difficult fight right out of the womb.
Every year, 20 million babies are born too soon, too small and very sick.
Half a million of them live in the United States.
November 17 is when we fight.
Give all babies a healthy start in life.

The March of Dimes invites bloggers like you to get involved.
The campaign, BloggersUnite: Fight For Preemies, asks bloggers from all over the world to post on November 17 - Prematurity Awareness Day – on behalf of the more than 13 million babies that are born too soon each year worldwide. Collectively, their posts will reach millions of people all over the world during November, Prematurity Awareness Month.
