March Of Dimes March For Babies

April 21, 2012

I will be participating with March of Dimes this year and March for Babies on Sunday April 29, 2012. This is a very personal cause to my heart, being that my daughter was born premature almost 4 years ago. I will be walking with my best friend and I'm excited to be participating in something that can truly make a difference in these babies lives. 

Here is a little back story on my daughter Laila. I ended up developing Preeclampsia. I had High Blood Pressure before I was pregnant, so I was high risk right from the start. Preeclampsia is defined as high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy. I was 28 weeks and ended up having my daughter 2 months early by emergency C-Section. She was born at 2 pounds, 14 ounces. Everyday that she was in the NICU was a complete roller coaster. One day she would progress better, the next a fall back. After 2 months of being in the NICU, she was able to come home at 5 pounds. Everyday was a struggle and a challenge, but she made it through completely healthy. She is a miracle and very lucky considering what can happen from being premature. 

I would be so appreciative if anyone would like to donate, even if it is a small amount. Anything and everything counts! 

Since this is a beauty blog after all, I have decided to give to those that will donate. If you make a donation of $10, I will send you a beauty package with samples, and beauty goodies*. Not only will you feel amazing for donating to a great cause, but you will receive some great beauty items as well! :)

I am so grateful to all who reads this and being able to reach out to you and let you know my story.
