The Hannah Rose Foundation

Shaken Baby Syndrome

1,200 and 1,600 children die every year in the United States from SBS. The Hannah Rose Foundation was formed to raise money to educate people about the fatal consequences of shaking your baby. It is our mission in life to prevent this from ever happening again to any child!

"Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime."

- Herbert Ward
