Riverview Medical Center Shows Support Through "Share"

For more than a decade, Riverview Medical Center has been part of Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc. The mission of this organization is to serve those whose lives are touched by the tragic death of a baby through early pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or in the first few months of life.

Riverview's Share Memorial Committee will once again hold their annual Holiday Memorial Service on December 6, 2010 at 7:30pm in the Blaisdell Lobby at Riverview. Last year's gathering drew more than 150 parents and aided to provide families with a positive resolution to their grief. Guests are invited to share a remembrance, poem, or loving message for their loved one.
