Our daughter, Casey Allyn Young, passed away in her sleep, suddenly and unexpectedly, on June 3rd, 2011 at the age of 21 months. We don't know how or why she died; her cause of death has been characterized as SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Children).

The inexplicable and sudden loss of Casey is unimaginable. We miss her smile, humor, voice, cuddles and kisses. We miss holding her hand, singing her songs, reading books with her; watching her grow along side her sister. We miss the future that will never be hers; never be ours.

We created The Casey Young Foundation to honor Casey's memory, her love of music, and to help prevent SUDC from happening in any other family. Please join us in our fight against SUDC, and make a difference in the life of a child.
