Kristen's Fundraising Page For Robert's Program (SIDS) in Memory of Ambrose Valentino
On December 3rd I am running a 5k in Portland, ME called the Santa Hustle and dedicating my run to #ambroseangels.
I am hosting a fundraiser, in memory of the beautiful angel Ambrose Valentino Mancuso who passed away last year. The funds will go directly to the Robert's Program at Boston Children's Hospital. Please consider donating to further SIDS research and help families who lost their precious babies
About the program:
Robert’s Program is a service offered to families in Massachusetts who have lost a child under the age of three years suddenly and unexpectedly.
Based at Boston Children's Hospital, our program brings together teams of the top doctors in their fields to apply new technologies and discoveries to every family whose child has succumbed suddenly and unexpectedly.
Our team has the most current medical knowledge of sudden and unexpected death. They have been studying sudden unexpected death in pediatrics (SUDP) - which encompasses sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and sudden unexpected death in childhood (SUDC) - for more than 20 years.
Our far-reaching program involves clinicians and scientists from the fields of:
•genetics, public health
•pediatric and forensic pathology
We work collaboratively with
•the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME)
•the Massachusetts Center for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
•the Massachusetts Infant and Child Death Bereavement Program
To provide comprehensive clinical care to families that have suffered the sudden and unexpected death of a child under the age of three due to natural causes, including:
•the review of autopsy information and providing and independent diagnostic opinion
•potential recommendations for additional testing
•assessment of risk to siblings or future children
To perform state-of-the-art research into sudden unexpected death in pediatrics (SUDP), that is, sudden death in children under the age of three that is currently unexplained, including:
SUID - Sudden Unexpected Infant Death
