Vinny

Across the country, hundreds of thousands of families, have been personally affected by the work of March of Dimes. Families like the Jones Family of Southern Maryland. After years of struggling with infertility, Denise and James Jones were excited to be growing their family. As the pregnancy progressed, Denise developed placenta previa, a condition where the placenta lies very low in the uterus. It can be a serious complication and Denise would need to be regularly monitored until she delivered. However, at 25 weeks, Denise’s water broke and she was flown to John Hopkins Hospital. There, doctors were able to stop her labor and placed her on bed rest. Three weeks later, Baby Vinny arrived via emergency c-section, weighing two and half pounds. Vinny faced many challenges, including two brain bleeds and chronic lung disease and spent 79 days fighting for life in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). Today, Vinny is two years old and has no setbacks from his early birth. The Jones family is dedicated to sharing their story to inspire others to help give every baby, and every family, a brighter start.
