Our Mission

Our mission is to break the silence on stillbirth, fundraise to purchase cuddle cots, help spread awareness, and support families moving through horrific circumstances.

After the loss of our son Tucker Makris, a Cuddle Cot would help other families spend much needed time with their lost child.

In memory of Tucker and to support the ongoing efforts to provide Cuddle Cots to more families like ours, we host an annual 5k, We Can Fly. This past year we were so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with 106.5 The End, Sacramento Bee, Good Samaritan Hospital, Sutter Roseville Hospital, San Joaquin General and Kaiser Santa Clara.

We are currently raising funds for our 6th cot to be placed at Stanford Hospital, and our fifth will be placed at Kaiser San Jose. if you’d like to donate directly to our fundraising site for these amazing cots please click here. The entirety of your donation goes straight into purchasing each cot we buy.
