A message from the Kosinskis:
We walk for our children, both of whom were born extremely premature. Our son, Brady Matthew was born at 20 weeks and 4 days gestation. He spent his 49 minutes on this earth in his mom and dad's arms being told how much he was loved and how sorry they were that they couldn't help him. He was just too soon to be saved. Our daughter, Mila Elayne was born at 23 weeks 2 days and, after 147 very long days full of ups and downs, treatments, and several eye surgeries, she was able to come home with us and is now living the life she was meant to. We walk in remembrance of our little boy who left such an indelible mark on our life in his short time here, and we walk to celebrate our daughter who taught us that there is no such thing as insurmountable odds.
About March of Dimes:
March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.
For 80 years, March of Dimes has helped millions of babies survive and thrive. Now we’re building on that legacy to level the playing field for all moms and babies, no matter their age, socio-economic background or demographics. We support moms throughout their pregnancy, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan. We advocate for policies that prioritize their health. We support radical improvements to the care they receive. And we pioneer research to find solutions to the biggest health threats to moms and babies.
What began with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's personal struggle with polio led to the creation of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, better known as March of Dimes, and ultimately a cure for the disease. With that success behind us, we began to focus on fighting birth defects, premature birth and infant death with innovations like newborn screenings and surfactant therapy; education for medical professionals and the public about best practices; and lifesaving research. We provided comfort and support to families in NICUs and advocated for those who needed us most, moms and babies.
Today we are stronger and more committed than ever to guiding moms through every stage of the pregnancy journey. We are fighting for the smallest among us and advocating for their health each and every day. And we do so with the tools, technology and knowledge needed to build a brighter future for us all.
