What We Do

Since 2003 we have raised nearly $700,000 for  research, education and outreach as well as for the Tatiana de Cavel Scholarship at the

Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State.

Most recently, we’ve contributed just under $30,000 to purchase cribs for families in need in Greater Cincinnati, through TriHealth’s Cribs for Kids and Hamilton County’s Help Me Grow.

October is National SIDS Awareness Month.

Find out more about  Cradle Cincinnati, the new initiative to reduce infant mortality in Greater Cincinnati.

In June 2002, we lost our four month old daughter, Tatiana, to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), one year later, we started what would be a series of fundraisers aimed at eradicating SIDS and making sure that no other family has to endure what we did. We still have a lot of work to do. You can help by joining us at or simply make a donation. Either way, you are helping us continue the fight.
