November = Prematurity Awareness

In the United States, 1 in 8 babies is born premature.

Worldwide 13 MILLION babies are born premature.

Prematurity is the leading killer of newborns in America. Those that survive often suffer life long health conditions like Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, Chronic lung disease, brain damage, Hydrocephalus and many other conditions.

All babies deserve their 9 months.

We fight, so they don't have to.
