Dedicated to the Education, and Prevention of Abusive Head Trauma and Shaken Baby Syndrome.

We are in the infancy stage of beginning our program. This fundraiser is to help us offset the costs of obtaining our 501 3C so that we will qualify and be able to apply for Federal, State, and Private grant sources that will fund our program as well as to purchase a small amount materials for education.

Our focus will be to provide education, awareness, prevention, and support services to those that have already been affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome. While we are starting with Belmont County, Ohio and the surrounding area, we look to expand as far as we can.

Education and awareness has been proven to be the most effective source of prevention.

I've began this fight in honor of my son Alex who faces the struggles of surviving Shaken Baby Syndrome everyday. Because of his fight, I educate. I can not take away what has happened to him but together we CAN help prevent it happening to another child.

While this effort is dedicated to my son, it is for ALL of the children. Those affected by SBS/AHT and those who HAVE been fortunate enough to not meet the horrible fate that SBS/AHT brings.

I know how lonely and isolating this journey can be. It turns your world inside out. If I can prevent yours from becoming the same I will. If we meet because you too are going though the experience of having a child abused I will be here to lend a hand, an ear or what every it may be.
