Today, First Candle is requesting your help.
Just a few minutes of your time can help propel
a movement that will save thousands of babies’
lives for future generations to come.
We are joining our friends at the C. J.
Foundation for SIDS,
to seek co-sponsors for S.1445 and H.R. 3212…
the Stillbirth and SUID Prevention,
Education and Awareness Act. This act is
sponsored by D-NJ Senator Frank Lautenberg
and Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr.,
and quite simply the single most promising piece
of legislation crafted in the past decade to
promote infant survival and address the
sudden unexpected death of young
children related to SIDS, SUID, SUDC and Stillbirth.
An incredible amount of legislative staff
time has been put into understanding the
issues and defining ways in which we can
reduce the risk for future families.
Nothing you can do today will have
more meaning and prevent more tragic losses.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL
LEADERS IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE TODAY.
By clicking on the following link provided
by the C.J. Foundation for SIDS,
it will be easy to type in your zip code
and automatically direct your letter to
the appropriate congressional offices.
You may personalize the letter or send the
template as is.
My personal goal is to have a minimum of
81 co-sponsors by Mothers’ Day…equivalent
to the number of babies who are stillborn
plus the number of babies who die of
Sudden Unexpected Infant or Child Death
EVERY DAY here in the United States.
Won’t you please help??????????
Please do it in honor of the babies and
children whom you love in your life.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!!!
Marian Sokol, President of First Candle
