On Friday, Dresden Mayor Jeff Washburn signed a proclamation designating Oct. 12 as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Day in memory of Jackson Wyatt Gallimore, who died due to SIDS on October 12, 2016, at the age of three months.
SIDS is the unexpected death of an apparently healthy baby with no discernable cause, and is a leading cause of infant mortality in our nation.
