Background

Fetal distress and syndromes take the lives of more than 200 babies a day and affect 800,000 pregnancies per year in the U.S. alone. The Fetal Hope Foundation’s mission is to provide support and information, fund research, increase awareness, and serve as an outlet for medical information related to fetal distress and syndromes. The foundation was born from the TTTS Race for Hope, which started in 2004 in Denver, Colorado. Within two years the race reached more than one million people and raised over $50,000. In 2006, the Fetal Hope Foundation was formally founded. Today the organization regularly communicates with 15 top fetal care centers and has over 1000 supporters. They recently hosted the TTTS Race for Hope-L.A. on March 30, 2008 in Pasadena, California.
