SALISBURY, N.C. — StarCom Racing is teaming up with Share Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support at Sonoma Raceway during the Toyota/Save Mart 350.
Share Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support is a community for anyone who experiences the tragic death of a baby. Share serves parents, grandparents, siblings, and others in the family unit, as well as the professionals who care for grieving families.
Share, a national organization with over 75 chapters in 29 states, includes services such as bed-side companions, phone support, face-to-face support group meetings, resource packets, private online communities, memorial events, training for caregivers, and so much more.
“As a parent of a child that died unexpectedly at birth, I have been compelled to help bereaved parents of the same rare situation,” said Elyshia Cope, StarCom Racing marketing director. “Often times these families feel alone, abnormal and forced to deal with the grief in silence. Share gives these babies and their parents a voice to not only tell their stories and gain a common support group, but to respect these precious little ones and give the families solace.”
“We are so grateful to Derrike and Elyshia Cope, Landon Cassill, and all at StarCom Racing and NASCAR for their support of Share’s mission,” said Debbie Cochran, Share executive director. “We appreciate the opportunity to increase awareness and provide hope and healing to families who have suffered the loss of a baby.”
