    Berry Family Of Aiken To Serve As 2013 March of Dimes Ambassadors

    Aiken, SC, August, 20, 2013  Megan Berry, Jacob Lott and Hannah Berry are serving as Aiken’s 2013 March for Babies Ambassador Family to help raise awareness about the lifesaving work of the March of Dimes. In Aiken County, March for Babies will take place on September 28, 2013 at 9:00am at O’Dell Weeks Center.

    Megan Berry understands firsthand what it can mean if a baby is not born healthy. Hannah was born 11 weeks too soon, weighing just 2lbs 15ozs.  Hannah survived her premature birth but needed to spend 42 days in the NICU. Today, Hannah is 1 ½ years old and loves playing with dolls and reading books.  She is healthy and does not show signs of any major birth defects.  Hannah also has an older brother, Jacob who is 3 years old.  He was also born premature at 34 weeks.  He only spent a few days in the hospital, but does have a few challenges most likely due to his prematurity.  Hannah and Jacob’s mother, Megan, understands the significant role that March of Dimes research played in helping save their lives.

    “No parent should have to experience the life-changing journey that happens when a baby is born too soon,” said Megan Berry.  “That’s why we’re honored to have this opportunity to help the March of Dimes continue working for the day when every family knows the joy of having a healthy baby.  Having a premature baby is a frightening and scary experience.  The fear of losing your child or the possibility of them having birth defects is overwhelming.  I’m honored and looking forward to helping the March of Dimes to enable them to help other families like myself.”

    Premature birth touches half a million babies and their families every year including nearly 9,000 babies in South Carolina each year. Babies born too soon are struggle to survive and may have lifelong health consequences. The March of Dimes is committed to funding research to find the answers to premature birth and funding local programs to educate healthcare providers and moms-to-be.

    March for Babies is the March of Dimes premier fundraising event that benefits all babies.  Aiken residents can sign up today to help fund lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at reaching the goal of giving every baby a healthy start in life. Funds raised by this March for Babies event support research and grants awarded to programs that improve infant and maternal health in South Carolina.

    The Berry family invites the Aiken community to register for March for Babies at www.marchforbabies.org  or calling 803-403-8525 to sign up as an individual, start a corporate, family team, or donate to help babies be born healthy.

    The 2013 March for Babies is sponsored nationally by the March of Dimes number one corporate supporter Kmart, Farmers Insurance Group, Macy’s, Cigna, Sanofi Pasteur, Famous Footwear, Actavis, Mission Pharmacal, and United Airlines.

    March for Babies is sponsored locally by Publix Super Markets, ASCO Numatics, WSI-SRS Team, Aiken Regional Medical Center, Dayco Products and Bank of America.

    The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
