This website is dedicated to the memory of Lily Sateriale (5/28/10 – 2/16/12), who was lost to Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) at 20 months of age. In addition to paying tribute to her life, we will share news with our friends, family, and local community about fundraiser events we plan to hold in the future.
To date, we have raised a grand total of $15,949 for research and advocacy of SIDS and SUDC in memory of Lily.
What’s New: Our “Love Blooms” shirt will be available for sale through 8/24/19. All proceeds benefit SIDS and SUDC research through Robert’s Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.
If you do not want to order a shirt, but would still like to support the cause, you can donate here.
Future Possiblities: A Syracuse-area event featuring a cookie walk and/or bake sale, photos with Santa, and holiday craft vendors during the 2020 Christmas season, which would also benefit Robert’s Program. If you’re interested in helping us plan future fundraisers, email us at email@example.com.
Goodnight, Not Goodbye
Goodnight, Not Goodbye is a raw, emotional testament to a mother’s love, and an honest account of SIDS / SUDC loss.
Over the course of five years, Laura shares how she learned to cope with grief and the new normal she faced with her family. Featured on the SUDC Foundation’s recommended reading list, Syracuse Woman Magazine, and the Eagle Star Review in Baldwinsville, NY.

On July 21, 2019, we attended The Compassionate Friends 20th Annual Walk to Remember in Philadelphia, in memory of Lily and all children who left too soon.
In May, 2019, we held a Facebook fundraiser for SIDS and SUDC research at Boston Children’s Hospital, which raised a grand total of $501!

Random Act of Kindness
