This weekend, my wife and I, along with our two kids will be walking in the March of Dimes Walk in Kankakee, IL. The March of Dimes is committed to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality through research, community service, education and advocacy.
We are fortunate to have two healthy children; we are walking in support of our cousin Mia. Two years ago, Mia was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. She has already endured three open-heart surgeries and faces at least one additional procedure before her third birthday. Not to turn this into a health care debate, but Mia will exhaust her health insurance coverage’s $1,000,000 lifetime benefit by the time she turns three.
If you would like to support me and Mia please head to our March of Dimes website at http://www.marchforbabies.org/dezmom.
Thanks in advance for your support,
