Today I turned 6 years old.  I had a birthday party over the weekend with a big vanilla cake. For my birthday, I got a big swingset and a kite that I can fly outside. 

 Birthdays are very special. Because I was born so early, doctors didn’t think I would have many. Now, I ‘ve had 6 and will have many, many, many more thanks in part to life saving research that was funded by the March of Dimes.

November, my birthday month, is Prematurity Awareness Month. My family and the March of Dimes are fighting for preemies. You can join them. To learn how, visit
