NEWPORT-Brie Fish, 2013 March of Dimes Ambassador, barely registered on the scales at her birth August 24, 2010.

The daughter of Chris and Sheila Fish, Brie weighed a mere 1.28 pounds at birth, so tiny that she fell into the "micro-preemie" category doctors use for babies weighing less than two pounds at birth. Doctors told Brie's parents their child had a 40 percent chance of survival.

Two and a half years have now passed, and Brie's doing fine, thank you very much. Although still tiny, she has perfect vision, one of the many odds she has defied. Like any energetic toddler, she zooms around a room at high speed, chattering and investigating and always ready to use a set of beautiful blue eyes to charm her audience.
