March of Dimes Walk
On April 22nd the APSFA made an appearance at the annual March of Dimes WalkAmerica event in Springfield, Virginia. Informative brochures and booklets were made available to hundreds of preeclamptic mothers and those who suffered from tragic fetal loss. This sparked enough interest that the materials were requested at the National March of Dimes WalkAmerica event in Washington D.C. the following weekend! Thousands of mothers, fathers and others who have been touched by a pregnancy gone-wrong were exposed to critical information about APS. The national chapter of March of Dimes in DC currently brings the materials when they are out in the public. Thank you to Seren Estrada for representing the APSFA!
