Go Team Bumble Bee
Next weekend our family and friends will be walking to save babies like Ella, born too soon. You can help us reach our goal by sponsoring us on our walk. Team Bumble bee has raised $855 of our $1000 goal.
Ella is the happy and healthy 9 month old she is today because of research funded by the March of Dimes.
It is easy to forget that Ella was ever sick, but she started her life stuggling to breath. She spent her first night of life intubated and recieving life saving surfactant instead of in her mothers' arms.
I know that times are tough for everyone but every little donation helps. Perhaps you would like to donate $10.40 one penny for every gram of Ella's birth weight or $18.04 for her current weight of 18lbs 4 oz.
