AMARILLO -- We're wearing purple today in support of Prematurity Awareness Month and World Prematurity Day is Sunday.
The local March of Dimes started a little early by celebrating Prematurity Day today.
The March of Dimes says that the United States got a grade of "C" for premature births and the state of Texas comes in with just a little more then 12-percent of all births before 37-weeks.
