As you probably know from last spring's blog entries, the March of Dimes has been an intergral part of helping save babies who were born prematurely. Most importantly, they funded the research to create surfactant which goes into the baby's lungs to help their tiny lungs breathe as well as possible. This was part of the reason Adam and Eleanor could survive when born at only 23 weeks. The March of Dimes is trying to raise awareness of prematurity by asking Google to highlight National Prematurity Awareness Day on Nov 14 in on their home page. Please go to the following website and sign the petition that the M of D has set up to support this cause. Thanks!
