What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Each year in the United States alone, medical treatment is sought for an estimated 1,400-1,600 babies who have been shaken. Don’t let your child become just another statistic! Tell everyone who cares for your child “Never shake a baby!”

5th Annual
Shaken Baby Syndrome Candlelight Vigil
Sarasota, Florida

You are cordially invited to the 5th Annual Shaken Baby Syndrome Candlelight Vigil in Sarasota Florida, April 15, 2011 7:00p.m. Suncoast Family Life Center, 8000 Hawkins Rd, Sarasota Florida 34241. This year we are gathering the top advocates in Child Abuse and Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention to speak to the families affected and the general public to bring attention to the severity and increasing cases of Shaken Baby Syndrome in our nation today.

On April 15, 2011, SBS Survivors and Victims families will fly in from across the globe to attend this event.

The mission of the Annual Candlelight Vigil is to bring together families with shared circumstances and raise awareness about Shaken Baby Syndrome. Information regarding medical treatment and therapy assistance, as well as information on how to handle grief will be available to all who attend. This event also works to establish a support system for families of SBS victims and survivors. By linking families together who have shared this traumatic experience, we can help each other to learn, to grow, and to prevent this from happening to other innocent children.

The Shaken Baby Syndrome Support Network Inc. are asking you to empower victim and survivor families and sponsor a family waiting to attend or donate items needed to ensure this vigil is a great success. Together we can help families dealing with extreme life changing events to comfort their hearts so they can maintain a life unforeseeable after the tragedy of Shaken Baby Syndrome has come forth in their lives.

For the families ongoing healing and support process, Child Abuse and Shaken Baby Syndrome Advocates from across the United States will be present for this event to speak to the families and provide insight into the steps for a healthy transition as these families walk through the grief, and anger associated with this tragedy.

We invite each and every one of you to meet these families April 15, 2011 in Sarasota Florida at the 5th Annual SBS Candlelight Vigil. The Network welcomes speakers to include, Major Connie Shingledecker - FBI National Academy 185th Investigative Bureau Chief Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Christina K. Farnsworth – Victim Advocate Coordinator Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, Darryl Gibbs – educator, lecturer, and legislative advocate Founder Cynthia Gibbs Foundation and Victim’s Advocate- Homicide Specialist for the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office in New York State, Scott Juceam – Father to Hannah Rose Juceam, and Founder of the Hannah Rose Juceam Foundation, Janet Goree – Grandmother to Kimberlin West and early childhood educator/SBS Advocate, Patrick Donohue - Father to Sarah Jane Donohue and Founder of the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation, and many more to be announced in the coming months!
