WE'RE ALL ABOUT HOPE
As parents who lost a child to SUDC, we fully understand the pain and frustration a family feels when facing a sudden unexplained death. We offer grants to families who wish to perform additional testing in an effort to determine their child's cause of death.
The Lyrics for Lucas Foundation Scholarship for Advancing the Performing arts scholarship has been introduced to raise awareness about SUDC and celebrate our love of Lucas, who suffered a sudden unexplained death in childhood. Through the scholarship, Lucas will live on by supporting talented recipients through their love of performing arts, its beneficial and healing powers, and how they use their talents to benefit others.
This scholarship is available to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors at any independent New Jersey who demonstrates a commitment to the performing arts.
Through fundraising events, Lyrics for Lucas supports the SUDC Foundation and the research they support to find answers about Sudden Unexpected Death in Children. The SUDC Foundation is the only organization worldwide whose purpose is to promote awareness, advocate for research, and support those affected by SUDC. SUDC is the fifth leading category of death in children ages one to four, yet it receives no public funding. The SUDC Foundation provides all services at no cost to families.
