Alex Hamilton, one of the Founders of Rivers Gift, shares her personal story of the loss of her precious baby River to SIDS.
By Janelle Johnston
Rivers Gift evolved from a simple pledge following the death of River Waddell to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) in November 2011. This pledge was to Stamp Out SIDS and ensure that no other parent would endure the pain and suffering of the unexpected and unexplained loss of their precious child. Co - Founder of Rivers Gift & mother of River, Alex Hamilton, shares with us her deeply moving story of the loss of her beautiful baby boy. “River was only with us for only 128 days…but the footprint he has formed on this earth is remarkable. River’s legacy is ensuring that positive change is being felt across the globe, by way of helping create a safer and healthier world for our infants. We have to make sure that our future generation don’t suffer the loss that we have, and that we put River’s name up in lights for eternity as a symbol of hope for a cure. My baby’s death will never remain as purely a statistic. Our cause is River’s gift to the world." - Alex Hamilton --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/janelle-johnston/message
