About our Acadiana Local Hero!

Why this finalist was deserving of Acadian's Local Hero.  
Staci lost her son Roman to stillbirth May 27th of this year. She took this tragedy and has displayed strength beyond any words. She formed Roman's Wings of Hope, which provides financial assistance for grief counseling to parents who have lost a child ages 12 and under. Staci has worked continuously to advocate for stillbirth awareness and is working relentlessly to personally raise the funds to place a Cuddle Cot into Women's and Children's Hospital. She has selflessly worked day and night to personally pay to get the organization off the ground and formed as a legal 501C nonprofit. Staci, like any grieving mother, has days of tears and heartache, but despite the pain, has pushed forward to continue to get the organization off the ground. She promotes HOPE to those who otherwise would not believe HOPE was possible by sharing her own journey. To me, she is the definition of a hero.

How Staci's efforts have made a difference in the community for the better.  
Staci is reaching families in need after the loss of their child. She is half way to her goal of being able to fund a Cuddle Cot for Women's and Children's that will serve hundreds of parents during it's medical duration and give grieving parents the gift of time.

How becoming Acadiana's Local Hero will further Staci's cause.  
I feel that it will help spread awareness for stillbirth and allow her to reach her goal of placing a Cuddle Cot into Women's and Childrens. It will allow others to see what her organization does and allow us to help more families who truly need our services.
