Named "Best Mommy Blogger of 2009" by thebump.com, Heather Spohr is a writer and philanthropist whose blog, "The Spohrs Are Multiplying," initially became popular as she detailed her family's experiences dealing with a high risk pregnancy, an extended NICU stay, and the difficulties of caring for a premature baby. Following the unexpected passing of her seventeen-month-old daughter, Madeline, Heather has continued to chronicle her family's story as they journey through grief, and has given a voice to families who have suffered the devastation of losing a child. A fervent supporter of the March of Dimes, Heather spoke before over ten thousand people at last year's March for Babies event in Los Angeles after her family team collected more donations than any other in the nation ($100,000+). She is also the co-founder of "Friends Of Maddie," a charitable organization that supports the families of critically ill babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units, and has spoken out for the rights of families at numerous conferences, on CNN, and before members of Congress. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Mike, and newborn daughter, Annabel.
