March for Babies 2010

Team Squeaker will be at Lake Phalen in St. Paul on Sunday, April 25th for the first annual 'Walk for Bryce and Chloe' (officially, the March for Babies). If you are interested in joining or supporting our team, please read on. If not, skip to the bottom for a little peek-a-boo fun.

It is very unlikely that Bryce would be here today without artificial surfactant, a substance that supports premature lungs, which was developed with research funds provided by the March of Dimes. Bryce also benefited from MoD-supported research into Nitric Oxide therapy.

The March of Dimes has invested nearly $2 million dollars into research at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic designed to prevent and treat birth defects, prematurity and conditions associated with very low birth weight. Finally, the March of Dimes provides funding for various groups that support families during their child(ren)'s NICU hospitalization.

Please join Team Squeaker on April 25th as we walk to honor Bryce and Chloe. Weather permitting, the little squeaker himself will be joining us as we celebrate the twins' lives. Also, please consider supporting the March of Dimes through a donation -- every dime counts! To join our team or make a donation, please click on Bryce's 'March for Babies' badge in the sidebar. Your support is greatly appreciated, and we hope to see you on the 25th!

----- Peek-A-Boo ------

When Mommy tries to play peek-a-boo with Bryce, he has a tendency to just stare at her blankly. But when Daddy does it, well, see for yourself.

Perhaps I should be concerned that the mere sight of my face elicits gales of laughter. Print this post
