NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – For so many families, the premature birth of twins often means the loss of one child. One family credits the March of Dimes for helping them keep living.
After years of trying, Briana and Matthew Tortoso were finally pregnant last year with twins.
But early in Briana’s pregnancy, complication arose, and the boys were born at just 28 weeks.
“I mean, you’re kind of just bounced around from in the NICU with your one son who is doing well and the transitional nursery with another son that was extremely sick,” Matthew told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “You can’t explain it unless you’re there. I can’t even explain and I’ve been there. It’s just awful.”
