Abigail was born on February 15th, 2008. 9 weeks before her actually due date. She weighed in at 2 pounds and and 13 ounces. The first 9 weeks of her life she was in the hospital in the NICU. She was finally able to go home on her due date.

Now Abigail is a healthy 4th grader who enjoys singing, playing guitar, basketball, raising pigs, and gymnastics. She does all of these things while getting straight A's.

Abigail's Mom knows that she is a blessing. Together they help raise money for the March of Dimes March for Babies event.

This year the event will be held on April 28th, 2018 at Town Square Village. Registration for the walk will start at 9:00 am. The Walk will then kickoff at 10:00 AM.

Abigail is asking for you to join her team by making a donation. You can do so by clicking here.

Prematurity is the #1 killer of babies in the United States. March of Dimes is working to change that and help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. From polio to prematurity the March of Dimes has focused on researching the problems that threaten our children and finding ways to prevent them.
