    Our Story: The Wackrow Family - The Cape Cod Ambassador Family

    Cape Cod, MA, April 16, 2014 —

    At 41 years of age, I was considered high risk while pregnant with Taylor. Having had Pre-eclampsia in the past with my two sons, born at 33 and 34 weeks, I was closely monitored during my pregnancy.  I gradually became ill in my second trimester and was admitted to the hospital at 27 weeks. I had HELLP syndrome which is a variant of Pre-eclampsia.

    Due to my condition, Taylor was delivered via an emergency c-section at 27 weeks, 6 days.  Due to my illness, I was unable to be part of Taylor’s first days.  This was the beginning of life in the NICU for our family. Taylor’s had many scary and life-threatening health battles in the NICU.  Taylor battled in the NICU’s of two hospitals for 139 days.  Each day was filled with both setbacks and victories.

    The past four years have been filled with clinics, doctors, physical therapy, occupational therapy and illnesses due to her prematurity.   Taylor has overcome her blood disorder, breathing issues, Torticollis, hip dysplasia, pneumonia, RSV and numerous other health conditions.   

    Today, Taylor amazes her and us doctors with her cognitive abilities.  She continues to struggle with her physical development and eyesight, yet her fierce spirit propels her forward. 

    Our commitment to March for babies began with a long night in the NICU watching Taylor fight to live.  The March of Dimes research and support is critical to help fight prematurity and we are extremely grateful.
