Helen James Foundation
HJF honors our angel Helen James Long who was born sleeping on June 5, 2018. It supports grieving families who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss. The Foundation is currently raising money for two Cuddle Cots to be donated to Regional One Health in Memphis, TN and Northwestern Women's Prentice Hospital in Chicago, IL.
24,000 babies are delivered stillborn in the United States every year. For parents, saying goodbye to their baby is the first step in a long grieving process. The Cuddle Cot helps to make that journey a little easier. The Cuddle Cot is a cooling device that preserves a stillborn baby’s body in a bassinet or crib, so that he or she can remain in a hospital room with the mother and father for up to five days. A baby’s presence with family is a priceless gift that helps to heal this most painful loss. When a family can hold, sing and rock their baby and allow siblings and extended family to share in the love, remarkable redemption can start to lift suffering.
Your generous donation will give families the gift of time and offer comfort as they mourn the loss of their precious child.
