After losing our son, Finnegan, to stillbirth we searched for some sort of community that could help us understand and connect with others in our situation. We were lucky to find Star Legacy where we raised awareness in Omaha, NE and started a walk to honor all babies gone too soon. We were amazed at the amount of people that also wanted to form a community and support system in Omaha. We continue to bring awareness to the community and many other communities in the US. Star Legacy is a great organization that truly wants to end stillbirth through research and guidance. I'm honored to be a part of this organization.
I have walked in the Star Legacy Walk in Omaha, NE for the past two years and plan on doing it again this year. I walked in memory of my friend's son Finnegan, but also in memory of so many others. This is a wonderful event to honor those precious babies that left us too soon. I was really impressed at how many activites are family oriented luke the childrens fun run abd balloon release.
Star Legacy Foundation is relevant in bringing awareness to families and those touched but those who have been effected. They have a great influence on helping those through difficult times. The members of this foundation are very dedicated and provide tremendous support through their understanding and compassion. In Nebraska, I attended an event called the Stillborn Awareness Walk. They shared their stories of hardship and break throughs and their belief in finding a way to prevent stillborns. This type of dediction is what this communicty needs.
Many poeple do not understand the impact that stillbirths have on families and even the extended families. Often times, families are left feeling confused, vulnerable, and lost. Star Legacy has been a wonderful resource and inspiring organization. In Omaha. NE, Star Legacy hosts walk each year that brings families together that have experienced or been impacted by a stillbirth. The organization brought many together and allowed everyone to gain support and share their stories. It has been remarkable and something that my family and I personally look forward to attending each year! The support and friendships that are made through the annual walk is truly remarkable. It is fun for all ages and they manage to choose beautiful locations! It is always ran very smoothly and I hope to be able to get involved more in the future!
Star Legacy Foundation provides comfort and support to families suffering from the tragedy of stillbirth. After we lost our son Dylan at 33 weeks gestation, we found a community of support through this organization. I have recently started to volunteer with Star Legacy in an effort to get tax credit legislation passed in New York just as the organization had helped influence in Minnesota. I am confident that the research and programs that Star Legacy supports will help prevent some causes of stillbirth in the future.
After my sister and brother-in-law's stillbirth, Star Legacy helped our family tremendously. With their help we've learned so much and have felt included in a community. We are grateful that there's an organization out there to help us put our grief to work. For such a common tragedy, there is a shameful level of public knowledge about stillbirths and other painful pregnancy outcomes. There's a lot more work for them to do!
Star Legacy Foundation provides so many resources to the families its serves and it fills a gaping hole that very few other nonprofits in the U.S. serve - research on stillbirth, pregnancy loss, and neonatal deaths. As a mom to a stillborn daughter, I wanted to help others who are also navigating this unexpected journey and shine some light on this under-researched topic. Star Legacy allows me to do both. Furthermore, the staff and other volunteers are so welcoming and focused on working together for other babies and families.
Star Legacy is doing a great job giving support to families that are going through the loss of their babies. We need to raise awareness and funds for research. Through Star Legacy we can help saving some beautiful lives.
