Thank you to anyone who signed the petition for preemies

I got the following email today:

"Because you signed the Petition for Preemies, we thought you would like to know that now millions of pregnant women and an estimated 11 million children will have much-needed health care coverage.

Today, President Obama signed the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) into law.

My heartfelt thanks to the moms and dads, grandparents, and friends who heeded the March of Dimes call to action. Children's health is not a partisan issue -- it's every family's issue -- and worry. At a time when economic woes and job losses have put health coverage at risk, this law is more necessary than ever.

Dr. Jennifer L. HowsePresident, March of Dimes"
