Eight names. Eight babies.

That's how many infants die of SIDS every single day in our country.

Countless. That's how many lives are affected by SIDS.

When you add up the parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, pastors, and friends whose lives are torn apart when a child is lost to SIDS, the damage is immeasurable.

While all children's deaths are devastating to their families and those who loved them, SIDS presents special emotional challenges for those left behind. The suddenness of it and lack of closure makes the healing process exceptionally difficult. That's why SIDS America seeks to serve those who have been left behind and prevent more children from being taken by SIDS.
