This fall, Fandom for Preemies will once again support the March of Dimes as the organization fights to end preterm birth and infant death across the globe. Each year, 13 million children are born too soon, and 1 million of them will not survive their first year. One in four will suffer serious life-long medical complications that jeopardize their chance for a normal childhood.
Each year, writers and artists from around the world put their talents to work to help support the March of Dimes as they work to end preterm births and cure birth defects, and I'd like to extend a personal invitation to each of you to get involved.
This is a cause very near and dear to me, both as the aunt of three preemies and as a volunteer coordinator for an organization that does everything possible to keep families together while their children fight serious medical issues like prematurity.
