A portion of each entry fee will be donated to The Fetal Hope Foundation. The Fetal Hope Foundation’s mission is to provide support, information, fund research, increase awareness and be an outlet for leading medical information pertaining to fetal distresses and syndromes. They are all about arming families with information to save their baby’s lives.
Aligned with some of the world’s leading fetal medicine centers, Fetal Hope has been organized to provide accurate and factual information for families dealing with syndromes such as Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), Acardiac Twinning (TRAP sequence), Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS) and Fetal Lower Urinary Tract Obstruction. Fetal Hope is about HOPE. No family should ever be left without hope.
Thousand of pregnancies are affected each year, but many go undiagnosed and/or untreated. On average 15 babies die each day from the affects of these syndromes. Some may have been saved with proper diagnosis and treatment. Twice as many babies die from TTTS and other fetal syndromes than from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome); yet more people are aware of SIDS. Upon diagnosis families often struggle with not knowing or knowing little about their diagnosis, they feel alone in their search for information, help and support. Fetal Hope is here for them.
