25% of pregnancies do not go full-term.
The leading cause of death among children aged 0-19 is unintentional injury.
Childhood cancer robs us of our beloved babies every day, out of every month, every year.
The loss of a child is a wound that will never heal.
And still we press on. Sometimes it feels disingenuous to find moments of peace in our day, when we know so many of our fellow parents are walking around with a giant hole in their hearts. This wall will be a memorial to memorialize the babies gone too soon.
The Memorial Wall will go live September 30th, as September is childhood cancer awareness month, and October is a month of awareness for infant and pregnancy loss. We feel the loss of all babies, whether it’s marked on the calendar or not, but often it can feel as if mom is the only one remembering. This is one small measure to rectify that.
