Thank you for finding this page and purchasing Team Vienna shirts and hoodies. The handprint on the front is from Vienna’s last piece of artwork, and her shadow on the back is from Halloween 2017. Proceeds from these sales will go to the SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood) Foundation to fund much needed research, awareness, and support for families.
The Foundation has helped us tremendously since our healthy daughter, Vienna, died suddenly and unexpectedly on 11/12/17.
January 19, 2018 would have been her 3rd birthday. She was a fun, free-spirited, silly, beautiful 2 year old girl, who loved to pretend to read, sing, explore various fashion choices, help her friends at school, and play with her family. She always had a smile to share with a loving heart.
Her autopsy found nothing that would cause her demise. So now we are left with no explanation of why she died except SUDC. We never heard of this. SUDC is a very poorly understood tragedy that impacts at least 400 families of children ages 1-18 each year. Most often, these seemingly healthy children go to sleep and never wake up. www.sudc.org (for more info and to donate)
We will be leading “TEAM VIENNA” in her honor and to raise SUDC awareness, as we walk in the Run with the Royals 5K in Sea Bright, New Jersey, on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at 10am. https://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/LongBranch/RoyalsRun5K. We would love if you could join us. However, if you are unable to come to Sea Bright, please consider walking in Vienna’s honor on 19 May in your town and sending a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures will be posted on Vienna’s website, www.sudc.org/vienna. Many friends/family will be walking in many states in the USA and various countries, on the same day, at the same time if possible.
To watch a powerful video in memory of those gone too soon, Vienna is at 1 minute 15 seconds, on the left: https://sudc.org/sudc-facts/faces-of-sudc
If more people know about SUDC and if a cause is discovered, maybe one day other parents won’t go through the daily torture of having lost a healthy, young child for no reason. She was an amazing little girl. Thank you very much for reading this.
Please remember her. She will always be one of our 3 Vs.
Heartbroken but surviving,
Vienna’s mommy, daddy, big sister, big brother, and our Angel Vienna
