Weighing just 1 lb, 7oz, Liam Geren was born on January 12, 2012 at only 24 weeks gestation. He spent 15 weeks in the NICU before returning home to his family and is growing stronger every day! He is a happy and healthy baby with no signs of prematurity and his mother Chris Geren of Bryan, Ohio credits his success to the advances funded by The March of Dimes.

For the Gerens, supporting March of Dimes is a way for them to help prevent another family from experiencing the same pain. “If we can save even one family from this type of pain, it’s well worth it.”
