Nine months. The change is gradual, then rapid.
- An embryo.
- The steady beat of a heart.
- A forming face, with tiny toes and feeling fingers to match.
- Fully formed organs, with skin, eyebrows, and hair to decorate the lining of the body.
- Ah... a mother can feel her baby move at this point.
- Now, a fetus can survive with intensive care.
- A better chance of survival.
- Prepare for delivery.
- Hello, world.
Seven sisters. The founders of the Yemaya chapter of Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Inc.
But they weren’t all born that way. Some of our founders were born prematurely. Fighting for air. As if the precious oxygen that just touched the inner lining of your lungs was viciously clawing its way out. Organs that required more months of growth, that had been ripped tragically from the comfort of their own home. Words can’t begin to describe the battle of surviving premature birth. But our founders did. They survived.
They survived but didn’t forget. Now they give back to the community and have left a legacy where the sisters who follow them fight premature birth. Now, March of Dimes is our chapter philanthropy.
Life is a beautiful thing. Something to be treasured, held dear. Each mother that has the privilege to bring new breath into the folds of our society blesses us with a new protagonist of change, inspiration, motivation. A blank canvas for the future.
March of Dimes is an organization that fights premature birth. In 2008, they expanded their Prematurity campaign globally in order to save lives worldwide. We wholeheartedly support this organization and what it stands for, and we hope you will join us in our cause.
