    Hey Everyone,

    Usually I don't post anything semi-personal on forums; however, March for Babies is something that I've started doing this year, and I'm looking for people to donate towards the cause. My team (so far only 2 people, my wife and I) will be walking in this May 1. I would love it if I could get donations to reach my goal.

    My team's current goal is $500.00, and I need all the help I can get. I'm doing this because Oct 8 2010, my son was born premature. He was lifelined to Riley's Children Hospital in Indianapolis, IN when he turned 2 days old from a Pneumothorax (or a collapsed lung). In which the pressure from the hole in his lung was squishing all his organs, and he flat lined. It was the scariest moment of my life! He is now "healthy" (he is deaf, and has 2 therapies a week to get him on track developmentally, requires a feeding tube through the nose because food and drink go into his lungs), and we want to help those people and babies that are going through the same thing!

    If you can donate, you can do so at: http://www.marchforbabies.org/team/t1562937

    Also please let me know if you donate (you don't have to tell me how much) so I can thank you!

    I donated a small amount. I have a 3 year old son, and he is my world. Your story touched me, God bless you and your family.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it greatly!

    Children are our world, our future, and the next premature baby could be a president one day! I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old daughter, and then my son (6 months old this friday!!!!)
