SIDS family provides SleepSacks for newborns at St. Mary’s Health Center
Thursday, February 10, 2011
Alan and Kim Atnip hope to turn their tragedy into a message of prevention and awareness in their son’s honor.
In January 2005, the Atnips lost their second son, Garrett Alan, to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
SIDS is the sudden and unexplained death of a seemingly healthy infant younger than 1 year of age.
Now six years later, the Atnips want to spread a message of awareness and prevention and have brought their mission to St. Mary’s Health Center, the same hospital where they had their four children: Nolan, Garrett, Justin and Michael.
