TeamEzra is our family March Of Dimes team in honor of our son Ezra Thomas Bryan born at just 26 weeks.
On Feb. 3rd 2007 I went to the hospital due to complications in my pregnancy. I was only 25 weeks 6 days pregnant. My due date was May 13th, Mother's Day. After a very long and painful night Ezra Thomas was born by emergency c-section on Sunday, Feb. 4th at 10:19 am. He weighed 2 lbs 1 oz and was 14.5 ins long.
Ezra was in the NICU for 3 months before he came home.
Every year, half a million babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many life long disabilities. The funds we raise in March for Babies support research that saves babies' lives like Ezra.

The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birth weight.
