A wonderful way to not only memorialize your child, but help other grieving parents is to become a peer parent. A friend says; "When my son died, I felt terribly alone. In doing this not only are you helping someone, but also your child is having a positive impact on someone."
Contact your local hospitals, clinics, and Department of Public Heath to locate a program. Explain your personal story to them. Tell they you would like your name and number given to doctors, nurses, social workers, etc. and would like to be contacted if you can help a parent in any way.
