March of Dimes Born to Shine Gala

I am raising money for the March of Dimes Born to shine Gala.   I have been on both ends of what could happen with a preemie.    My first daughter Erika was born October 20, 2006 at 24 weeks at 1Ib 10oz.    She suffered from a level 4 brain bleed and was on a respirator to help with her breathing.      And shortly after her birth she passed on November 5th from NEC (Necrotizing Enterocollitis).     My daughter Brianna was born at 23 weeks at a whopping 1Ib 2oz on September 21,2016.    She endured NEC, being on a respirator for 3 months and ROP.   Without charities like the March of Dimes who fund research and have helped a preemies potential to thrive my daughter Brianna may not be here with us now.    And now we have been honored with being the mission ambassador  family for the March of dimes gala. And would love to give a nice donation to this cause for all babies born too soon or with other disabilities that may have them in the NICU after birth. Any donations  are very appreciated.   This is a 100% tax deductible gift for the March of Dimes.
