Tiny Handprints - The Jacob Hughes Williams Foundation
June 24, 2010

Tiny Handprints was there for me when my precious little girl died of SIDS last June. Stephanie talked with me and answered all of my questions and offered me hope of going into the future without my daughter. In the year that my daughter has been gone, Tiny Handprints has sent us grief materials and reached out to us to let us know that we were not alone.

The CJ Foundation for SIDS, Inc.
June 2, 2010

In June 2009, our 5.5 month old daughter died of SIDS during her afternoon nap. We knew what SIDS was and had followed all the "ways to reduce the risk" and our baby was still gone. Within two days of contact to the CJ Foundation, they had mailed us a book, "The SIDS & Infant Death Survival Guide" and other grief material. But it did not stop there. I was contacted by a member of the board who had also lost a child to SIDS and instantly had someone who understood what it was like. In the almost year since our daughter has been gone, the staff at the CJ Foundation has reached out to us in countless ways to assist us in our walk with grief. They remembered her birthday and the never cease to send a card or email right when we need it most. They listen to me cry when needed and give me encouragement. We recently found out we were expecting a third child and they rejoiced us with us but also acknowledged our fear and apprehension. We appreciate that they support research to find the reason behind SIDS and that they keep us posted on the latest developments. I wish that I had no reason to know about this organization, but if my daughter has to be gone, I am thankful that the CJ Foundation for SIDS is there to help us and to also assist us in pushing for more answers (from Congress passing legislation to research materials) so other parents do not have to know this type of pain.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

June 2009 and since then. They continue to help me walk through the grief of my daughters death. Now I volunteer to help them when needed and I refer other parents to them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate and passionate about their job. They want to find the reason for SIDS and eliminate it.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

fund lots of research to find the answer to this mysterious killer.
