Sawyer’s Heart Project

Our Story

On June 3, 2010 – our lives were forever changed. My husband Erik and I were faced with the devastating loss of our infant son, Sawyer Erik Williams, just two days after he was born three months premature. Although our loss was tragic and heartbreaking, the blow was softened by the generous donation of an infant remembrance box to Comer Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal-Intensive Care Unit. Because of this gift, we were able to make beautiful memories with Sawyer that are treasured in our hearts forever. As my husband pushed me in a wheelchair out of the hospital’s birthing unit, I tightly clung onto the plaster mold of our son’s tiny feet, a lock of his dark hair and so many other special trinkets that I will always be grateful for receiving. At that moment, I knew that I never wanted another mother to leave the hospital with empty arms – and this is our effort to ensure that we can provide comfort to parents in a time of tremendous loss.
