First Steps for SIDS

First Steps for SIDS is a nationwide campaign to raise awareness & much needed funding for critical SIDS research. It is being sponsored by the Aaron Matthew SIDS Research Guild of Seattle Children’s Hospital and the American SIDS Institute . Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death among children one month to one year old across all developed nations. This campaign recognizes an amazing milestone in a child’s development -- their "first steps" -- while shining a light on a serious issue that needs more attention and funding.
