Team Vienna – SUDC Awareness Gear
Thank you for finding this page and purchasing Team Vienna gear to help support our mission of awareness and research support for SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood), while honoring our sweet, darling Vienna. Vienna was healthy and 2 months shy of 3 years old when she fell asleep on our family room carpet in New Jersey, and never woke up. Her death was categorized as SUDC after a thorough investigation, including an autopsy, death scene investigation, and medical record review. Her genetic studies did not reveal a cause of death. Shockingly, SUDC affects kids 1-18 years old, and most physicians have never even heard of it, as it is not included in medical education. Currently, there is no public or federal funding. SUDC is one of the most under-recognized medical tragedies of our time.
Our new logo for our new 501c3, nonprofit, Team Vienna 4 SUDC Awareness Inc., is featured on our gear. The handprint on the front is from Vienna’s last piece of artwork, and the V with the halo represents how I now sign her name on family cards.
Please see TeamViennaSUDC.org to learn more about Vienna, SUDC, to donate, and to get involved.
