Our Mission

We  believe in supporting SIDS research, education and awareness, and work to support the families who have lived through the heartbreak of losing a child to SIDS.

We dream of a world where no parent will ever again know the tragedy of losing a child to SIDS. With your support we believe we can eradicate SIDS for good.

Your Support Matters

Over the last ten years, we have raised nearly $1,000,000 through the generous support of our donors throughout the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas.

This money is used to fund research, grants and a memorial scholarship awarded annually at the Midwest Culinary Institute.

Make A Donation

The generous spirit of our donors and volunteers is what keeps our foundation strong.

Please donate today, and help us in our mission to stop SIDS from ending our children's lives.
