THE STORY:

We got pregnant with our Olive shortly after I suffered an ectopic pregnancy and had my left fallopian tube removed. Our pregnancy was a surprise but we were so happy. At 18 weeks, we found out our results from the quad screen (initial test for Trisomy 13, 18 and 21) came back a 1 in 70 chance our baby had Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards syndrome. The next few weeks were a blur, waiting to see the MFM doctor in Fargo and reading up on this terrible diagnosis we were potentially facing, first thing we read was "incompatible with life". The day came where we finally saw the MFM doctor in Fargo. Had a level 2 ultrasound and we didn't get good results. Had the amnio so we would have a for sure diagnosis. On March 18th 2015 (which so happens to be national Trisomy 18 awareness day) we found out our Olive Jean Taray had full Trisomy 18. We lost her March 25th 2015, not a day goes by where we don't think or talk about her. We miss her so very much and we are excited to honor her at this Rock and walk. What: North Dakota Rock & Walk Where: Dickinson, ND Eagles Park When: September 30th at 10:00 AM MT The TEARS Foundation is offering an exciting opportunity for the community to become involved with a growing and inspiring event. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk is the signature fundraising event for TEARS. This annual event allows registered walkers to “walk” in honor of a child, or simply in support of others. Each team of walkers may also “rock” in the rocking chairs placed at the event site. Rocking chairs signify the heart of the walk, which is to raise funds for families who have lost a baby and are in need of funeral assistance and emotional support services. The TEARS Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that compassionately assists newly bereaved families with their baby’s funeral expenses and with ongoing emotional support. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk event is a time for our community to gather, to walk and to rock, and lift up the families in our local communities who have been affected by the loss of a child. Thank you for helping us support bereaved families in North Dakota. REGISTRATION: Registration is $10, children 12 and under receive free admission. You may purchase a personalized Rock & Walk t-shirt by August 15, 2017. A limited amount of non personalized shirts may be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.
