Hello friends! We are raising money to purchase a Cuddle Cot to donate to Barnes Jewish Hospital in honor of our angel daughter Allison Ann.

Let me tell you a little about the cuddle cot. A Cuddle Cot is a refrigerated bassinet in the most basic of terms. When a family has a baby that passes away, the moment the baby passes, you are on a time clock. As you can imagine, time begins to take its toll on the baby's physical form. You get some time to spend, but its not enough. The Cuddle Cot is a way of slowing down the clock. The baby can stay with t he family for much longer, allowing them precious moments, photo opportunities and the time to make memories before they have to say goodbye. 

There are a few cuddle cots in the United States and only ONE in the entire St Louis area. We want to provide the gift of time to parents in honor of our sweet Allison. This donation, as you can imagine, comes at a hefty cost, but its truly one I believe we can reach. The cost of a cuddle cot is 2764.00.

The gift this will bring to families is priceless. We are starting our campaign now and we ask you to please consider a donation, in any amount, to our Cuddle Cot Campaign in honor of our sweet Allison Ann.
