Nearly 9,000 babies are born prematurely each year in Washington State alone, putting fragile lives at risk and an indescribable hardship on their families. March of Dimes, a non-profit organization, supports these babies and their families financially, medically, and emotionally, as well as supporting research on premature births and birth defects to help prevent future pregnancy and birth complications. Thanks to individuals and companies that support March of Dimes, many local families are able to pull through the first difficult, vulnerable months of their babies’ lives, emerging happy and healthy on the other side.
