Today, State Senator Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) issued a statement regarding National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is observed every year on October 15.
“It is important to recognize the unbearable loss so many parents experience across the country and to provide support to those who have lost a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS and other causes,” said Senator Yuko. “Within our Senate family we have recently lost one of our own. No one should have to experience the pain that comes with losing a baby.”
A candlelight vigil to honor babies who died during pregnancy, childbirth and infancy will be held at the Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park on Sunday, October 15 at 6:45 pm. For more information about the event, please visit: http://www.october15th.com/activities-walks/#O.
