FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO - A few years ago, the world came crashing in on Bill and Cheryl Darnell, SIDS America founders, when they went to wake their infant son, Billy, for his morning feeding and found him dead. Billy, who had seemed perfectly healthy just a few hours earlier, had fallen victim to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), the leading cause of death among infants between 1 and 12 months of age in America.
"There were no warning signs, and there remains no explanation for the heartbreaking death of our little boy," Cheryl said. "With so many hopes and dreams shattered, we simply couldn’t imagine how life could possibly continue."
