SIDS is a syndrome for babies under one year old, and what many parents might not know, there is also SUDC, a horrible cousin of SIDS.
SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood) is the sudden and unexpected death of a child over the age of one year old. SUDC is very rare, with a reported incidences in the United States of 1.3 deaths per 100,000 children (compare to 57 deaths per 100,000 for SIDS), and it is not as researched and well-known as SIDS.
SUDC is Rosie’s Reason
This girl here is Rosie, she is a happy 7 year old girl from Colorado and she and Monkey-Toes, a Colorado based children’s shoe company, joined their forces to support the SUDC Program and raise awareness for SUDC. The SUDC Program is part of the CJ Foundation for SIDS-a national health organization leading the fight against SIDS and SUDC.
Rosie drew the picture for the t-shirt she is wearing, and you can purchase the tee and share Rosie’s Reason. 10$ of each tee goes for research of SUDC to help us understand why this is happening and to create preventative measures.
