Join us for SIDS Awareness Month 2022!
October is SIDS Awareness Month. To promote awareness and educate our community, Aeron’s Foundation will be engaging in a few events that we invite you to join in!
October 5-6, 2022
The California Department of Public Health is hosting the 41st Annual (Virtual) Conference on SIDS. This conference is valuable to medical professionals, emergency responders, and family members who have been affected by SIDS. There will be information for professionals who encounter SIDS cases in their jobs, to allow them to better understand the experience of parents and families, and to provide insight into what can be done to reduce the risk of SIDS and sudden death in their communities. For families, there will be a parent and sibling panel as well as support sessions to share and join with others who have gone through a similar devastating journey. Click here to register!

The Pasadena Public Health Department is hosting an outdoor screening of “The Starling,” a comedy-drama depicting the marital journey of a couple who lost their baby daughter to SIDS. This event will include an educational session for the community about SIDS and how to support families after an experience of sudden death. Dr. Jennifer Su will be sharing our personal experiences after losing Aeron in 2018. Aeron’s Foundation will be providing educational resources and book information at this event. We will post more about this event in the upcoming weeks.

Aeron’s Foundation will be hosting a virtual book reading for long-anticipated children’s book, Aeron in the Sky! This book is inspired by a desire to preserve the sibling memories and loving relationship for Aeron’s older sister despite her younger brother’s physical absence. Included in the book are professional tips that we found personally helpful to explain death to a young child. We hope this book will provide a conversation starting point for families to talk openly about death with a child and provide a space to cherish memories of deceased loved ones. The first 10 people to register for this event will get a signed copy of Aeron in the Sky! Register here.
