Ethan James Memorial 5k Walk


All About Us

On December 18, 2010 at 4:42 pm, Ethan James Cowen was brought into this world by Emergency C Section much to the delight of his parents and everyone who came to know him. Ethan loved his bottles, splashing in the bathtub, his jungle bouncy seat, his Einstein peacock, his Star Wars book, his little blue elephant, trying to get his feet in his mouth, and disrupting church service. On May 11th, 2011 Ethan James went down for a nap and never woke up. His life was over at 4 months and 24 days.

To look at Ethan was to love him, from his big bright blue eyes and chubby cheeks down to his feet that would never take first steps. 

Any family who has suffered a SIDS death can tell you it's not a cause of death but the absence of one. 

The Ethan James Foundation raises funds for SIDS research.

Healthy babies should not just stop breathing.
