Meet Lee, the 2015 March for Babies Ambassador for Maryland's Eastern Shore! Baby Lee was born in December of 2011. He was six weeks early weighing 4 pounds,14 ounces. Due to prematurity complications, he was airlifted to Children’s National Medical Center where he stayed for the next 12 weeks. He fought through multiple surgeries, procedures, even Sepsis. Thanks to the help of his amazing medical team and modern medicine, after spending 88 days in the NICU, Lee came home on February 8, 2012.
Lee is now a very active 3-year-old. He is proud to call the scar on his abdomen his ‘battle wound!’
His sisters have never cut him any slack when it comes to sibling rivalry but are also very protective of their little brother.
