    Angel Baby Nathan

    I lost my precious Nathan at four months to what we were told was "witness SIDS". An extremely rare situation where baby is awake and stops breathing with no known cause as to why.. I struggle every day with his loss as he was with a babysitter. He passed in January and I am now around 10 weeks pregnant and anxious yet overjoyed. I know baby Nathan would want me to continue my role as mommy I...

    Losing my princess

    I lost my princess on 24th March 2017 from SIDS.  It is an unfair and cruel diagnosis. Without a discovery as to why this occurs, I cannot prove whether a dump fire in my neighborhood was the cause of her death or not. On Thursday 23rd March, the smoke in our area was unbelievable and it is not by chance she would be dead the next day. We must do something to shed light on the causes of SIDS.

    Never forgotten

    I lost my son Steven in April of 1999, he passed away at babysitters home and he was born on Feb 4, 1999 he died at 2 months of age. And there's never a day I don't think of him and blame myself of leaving him there. God is good and he has given me strength and faith to keep moving on, I have a 33yr old and 3 grandsons yes blessed.

    can we save SIDS baby if monitor her every minute

    After my Chloe passed away three weeks ago, although such thinking won't do anything to bring Chloe back, my husband and I were trying hard to figure out if there were chance for us to save Chloe if we monitor her every minute and awake her once we find out something is wrong. We talked to state medical examiner and he said there is no way to save a SIDS baby once it starts, even we monitor her...

    SIDS Research

    In July, 2006, my son was diagnosed with "interrupted SIDS" after he died in my father's arms. I am sure you have never heard of that diagnosis...that is because it is so very rare. He was 10 weeks old, a perfectly healthy baby boy. I am passionate about finding the answer to SIDS. I will never forget the agony I felt when the doctors told me that they had done all they could do for my child but...
