“My name is Lisa Ferreira and I am the mother of surviving twin Cristiano and March of Dimes Team Captain for Team Gabriella Lisa RV003. Gabriella
Lisa Ferreira entered this world 12 weeks early via emergency C-Section on April 27, 2014. She was in fetal distress and doctors decided this was the best case scenario for her, her twin brother and Lisa. She was born at 1.12 ounces, 12 inches at 4:20PM. She was strong from the beginning. I still remember her little hands pulling on her feeding tube. The nurses described her as ‘feisty’. She was doing well. She even gained 1 ounce within the first week! Once her inlet was moved next to her twin brother, Cristiano, he started to get healthier.On the morning of week 2, Gabby developed an infection in her bowel. Within hours, she was getting weaker and weaker. Beautiful Gabriella passed away at 12:55PM on April 25, 2009 due to a lung and bowel infection. Our hearts are aching while our hopes and dreams continue with her brother Cristiano who continued his fight in the NICU for a total of 49 days! Cristiano will be celebrating his 5th Birthday on April 11th. He is a smart, adorable little boy. Please donate or join our team in helping raise our goal of $5000.00.

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Please
join us on April 27th at Spruce Run Park in Clinton NJ at 9am. Registration is online or in person on April 27th at 8am.
