Your support is very appreciated.

We would like to the following for the generous donations they have awarded us this year: The Community of Livingston, Tennessee, in honor of Vicki Oliver, the grandmother of Hayes, has given over $1600 in donations. Vicki Oliver has graciously given the foundation $10,000 which we would like to place in her memory. The communities of Livingston, Sparta and Cookeville have donated to the foundation through their participation in the Hayes Hitzeman Golf Tournament.

Following these guidelines may help reduce the risk of SIDS:

  • Place your baby on the back to sleep at night and naptime
  • Use a firm mattress in a safety-approved crib
  • Eliminate fluffy, loose bedding from your baby's sleep area
  • Keep your baby's face clear of coverings
  • Be careful not to overheat your baby
  • Breastfeed if possible
  • Don't allow anyone to smoke around your baby
  • Consider offering your baby a pacifier at naptime and bed time for the first year (but not for the first month for breastfed babies)
  • Do not allow your baby to sleep in an adult bed
  • Consider using a fan in the baby’s room for air circulation
  • Tell anyone that may keep your baby about This Side UP
