March for Babies...Please help Team Tomecko!!!

You all know our story...We have had all our children born prematurely, but Kenny and Nick were little miracles! I am so proud of my twins, first, Kenny for fighting hard to survive and thrive! He has come a very long way since those long, terrifying days in the NICU. Yes, he has developmental delays, hearing loss, chronic lung problems, epilepsy and more, but if it wasn't for the March of Dimes and their research on using Surfactants, Kenny would never of even had a chance outside of me. he is growing up to be a very energetic, special little guy that God has big plans for.
And Second, My son, Nick, who put up a good fight and lived for 2 and a half days. In those two days, Nick made a very big impact on our family's life and also the doctor's and nurses lives in the NICU. He will always be a part of our family and we will walk with pride in honor of Nick, Kenny and the rest of our kids!
It has been a very long and tough journey...the life with a micro preemie and the memory of Nick...and from what I have been told, its gonna be for a long time. My thoughts and prayers go out to those experiencing the NICU life and there after...Please help us meet our goal! Thank you so very, very much!
...And remember, if you want to walk with Team Tomecko, we would love to have you!
