RALEIGH, N.C. - Caron and Nicholas Hodges were not expecting their son Carter to be born when Caron was just 30 weeks pregnant.

But Carter arrived weighing 3 pounds, 5 ounces, after Caron Hodges’ placenta ruptured.

“I had never seen a baby that small,” Caron Hodges said.

Carter was released from the hospital 24 days later, weighing just more than 4 pounds.

The Hodges said they are thankful for Rex Hospital for their now healthy 3-year-old boy. But the Hodges also thank the March of Dimes.

Carter was treated with Cerfactin, which helps babies with under-developed lungs. The March of Dimes funded the development of this treatment for premature babies.

The Hodges have taken part in the March for Babies for the last three years to show their appreciation.

The 2014 March for Babies is April 26 at the Perimeter Park in Morrisville. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. with the walk beginning at 10 a.m.
