Walk to Remember...

-The 9th annual “Walk to Remember” at Mercy Medical Center-
During the month of October (National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month) hundreds of parents, health professional and friends across the United States will be participating in the “ Walk to Remember.”

This walk is dedicated to the approximately 870,000 babies that die each year through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death. The walk also symbolically joins all people nationwide who are working to raise awareness of perinatal grief and ensure that sensitive care is given to parents who experience the death of a baby.

“We Remember Them.” A monument is being dedicated this year, it is erected because there was life - not death. It reflects not sorrow, but memories of the warmth and love experienced. It is a symbol of devotion, a tangible expression of the noblest of human emotions – love.
A monument speaks out as a voice from yesterday and today to ages yet unborn.
Please come join us to honor your baby.

When: Sunday October 12th 2008 @ 1 PM
