A SIDS donation box has been set up by CaST inside Father J. Youngâs office in memory of Marley, Mellissa Cherellaâs four-month-old daughter who died two weeks ago of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome while sleeping at her day care center.
SIDS is the death of any child under one year of age that is still unexplained after an autopsy. The syndrome causes abut 2500 deaths per year, but the numbers are dropping because of awareness and research.
Erin Moy â10 and Anna Etra â10 are running the project for CaSTâs.
There will be a pink box in Youngâs office for donations until the week after Spring Break and all donations will go to the institute in Cherellaâs name.
