Each and every day, in communities across America, expectant moms will feel their baby’s first kick; parents will listen to their newborn’s first cry; and families will celebrate the birthday of a healthy baby.
Also each and every day, 13 babies will be lost to SIDS and other sudden, unexpected infant deaths; more than 70 new parents will have listened sadly their stillborn baby’s silence; and countless lives will be lost to miscarriage and other causes of infant death.
October is SIDS, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and First Candle is joining forces with individuals, local, state and national organizations, as well as corporate and retail partners to increase awareness about these tragic causes of infant death.
As you know, it is our goal to make it possible for every baby to celebrate not only his or her first birthday, but many happy birthdays beyond. Won’t you join us by making a commitment to make a difference in the life of a family and support our efforts?
The opportunities are endless, the results will save lives!
