Hannah C. Kinney, M.D., Associate Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and lead SIDS researcher at Children’s Hospital in Boston, is engaged in an aggressive effort to find answers stating, “Findings provide evidence that SIDS is not a mystery but a disorder that we can investigate with scientific methods, and some day, may be able to identify and treat.” The important and time-consuming research being conducted by Dr. Kinney and her colleagues is dependent upon the interest, dedication, and ongoing support of private donations from various sources including the National institute of Child Health, SIDS organizations (like Avé’s Hope) and, of course, SIDS families such as ours who honor the memory of our children taken from us by this devastating, mysterious and unexplained disorder.
