Al Roker, weather and feature anchor of Today, spoke to them about March for Babies, the March of Dimes number one fundraiser, which will take place in most areas of the country this coming weekend of April 27-28.
Nina was born more than two months early, weighing less than 3 pounds. She and her family are travelling around the nation this year to help raise awareness of the serious problem of premature birth and the lifesaving and education and treatments developed by the March of Dimes.
