Most people are familiar with the wonderful work of March of Dimes, but did you know about the charity’s presidential origins?
President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s experience with polio spurred his decision to create the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The charity pioneered the vaccine that eradicated polio in the US. The organization was later renamed to March of Dimes.
March of Dimes fights premature birth through a few key strategies: research, care innovation, advocacy, education and NCIUs. They are committed to supporting moms throughout their pregnancies, and babies as they grow.
The charity researches the causes of premature birth and birth defects. They also provide information to mothers and families on the dangers of these issues and how to avoid them. With local programs throughout the country, their resources are readily available to families nationwide.
