TEAM OLIVER

Dear Family and Friends,

Together we can make a difference!  Each year 26,000 babies are born still in the United States.  On January 25, 2013 one of those babies was our dear Oliver Cohlan Hughes. 

Parent Magazine recently wrote, " New research on stillbirths highlights the so-called "silent problem" that continues to grow globally, even here in the U.S. There is a common misperception that many of the deaths are inevitable, but our research shows most stillbirths are preventable," says Professor Joy Lawn from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. "We already know which existing interventions save lives. These babies should not be born in silence, their parents should not be grieving in silence, and the international community must break the silence as they have done for maternal and child deaths. The message is loud and clear—shockingly slow progress on stillbirths is unacceptable."

Until we had Oliver we had no idea. Since Oliver was born still we have learned a lot.  One of the things we have learned is that we need great research to lower this alarming incidence of stillbirth.  We also have learned that Star Legacy Foundation is leading the way in supporting research.  Once we spoke about Oliver we learned about so many other families that had experienced stillbirth or knew someone who did.  We can not be silent about stillbirth. 

Together we can make a difference.  Please join Team Oliver, form your own team,  register as an individual or support Team Oliver with a generous donation.  No donation is too small ( or too big!)

Thank you
