Taking a stand... and being heard

The Sudden Unexpected Death, Data Enhancement and Awareness Act

The Sudden Unexpected Death Enhancement and Awareness Act

Did you know that every year in the US...

  • More than 25,000 Stillbirths occur and half of them have no known cause?
  • More than 4,600 babies die of sudden unexpected infant death?
  • And 200 children, between the ages of 1 and 4 years, die without a specific cause ever found?
You can make a difference! Support this crucial legislation now!
"Serving as the most influential piece of SIDS/SUID/SUDC legislation to date, The Sudden Unexpected Death Data Enhancement and Awareness Act (S 314/HR 669) promises to promote unprecedented, positive change by improving death-scene data collection methods, establishing nationwide awareness and education plans, and expanding support services for families in need.  

Please help give answers to families and save the lives of future generations by contacting your Congressmen today! "

I know it is easy to think that this will never happen to you... or to anyone you know, but my family is living proof that in the blink of an eye, your child can be gone.   We have meet so many wonderful families who are suffering the same fate as us and are left feeling helpless, lonely and wondering 'what the heck just happened?!'  Please take a moment to support families like mine and contact your legislation today!
