Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, is a tragic mystery of medical science. There is no known cause of it and no symptoms other than death. Floyd County resident Julia Pope is familiar with the tragedy. She lost her own baby daughter, Breanna Bishop, to SIDS back in December. Breanna was just nine days old. Pope is honoring her daughter’s memory with the Little Miss Breanna SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Awareness Pageant. The event is set for this Saturday, August 11th at 4 pm at Belle Terra in Cave Spring. Little beauties will compete in various age categories from 0-15 years old.
Breanna was born on November 22, 2011 and died on December 1, 2011, according to Pope, who says she wants to share her experience with the public to help others faced with the tragedy of SIDS.
Pope says Saturday’s Little Miss Breanna SIDS Awareness Pageant will be special.
Proceeds from the pageant will benefit the American SIDS Institute, whose mission is to ultimately fund research and find a cure to save babies. Pope says that deadline for entries into the pageant has passed; however, more contestants are being sought for the 13-15 and 0-3 age groups.
