SOS Foundation helps pay for funeral costs after death of a child

When a local family unexpectedly looses a young child the SOS Foundation in Amarillo is there to help.

The group helps pay for the funeral home, cemetery or grave marker.

But having enough money to make sure all families are serviced can sometimes be a challenge. That's why on Saturday the group hosted a memorial celebration for babies who have passed away, including the child of Crystal Robinson who started the foundation two years ago.

"Before experiencing this and before becoming friends with other baby loss moms and dads I didn't realize that it takes about $1,500 at least to bury your baby. Many people do not have that funding available," Robinson told us.

The SOS Foundation focuses on children who are as young as 20 weeks gestation to one year old.

If you have lost a baby and need funeral cost assistance, you can go to www.surakourson.com for the application.
