March of Dimes Signature Chef Auction 2009: How8217s Mission

March of Dimes Signature Chef Auction

How&8217s this for a mission: Help all babies be born healthy.

That&8217s what the March of Dimes is all about. Premature birth affects more than half a million babies and their families every year in this country. The 9th annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction is coming up soon. It&8217ll be fun, an event you&8217d really enjoy attending while at the same time helping the March of Dimes fulfill its mission. Emerson Schneider wasn&8217t so sure she wanted to make a silly face for me even after I asked real nice. It took her a little while to warm up to the camera. Emerson&8217s mom and dad Julie and Toby Schneider count Emerson as a blessing from heaven. Julie says the loss of premature twin boys tested them in every way. One baby was stillborn, and little Evan lived less than two weeks. &8220Truly, the absolute most challenging thing we&8217ve every gone through in our entire lives, and it will test your love, your strength, your faith,&8221 Julie Schneider said. &8220But, you get through it with the right person and with your faith and with the help and support of the people who work in the community with March of Dimes.&8220

Julie and Toby Schneider couldn&8217t face losing another child to premature birth, and that&8217s where the March of Dimes touched them.
