This will be helpful to have access to in the future if your state is working on getting the MISSing Angels Bill passed into being a law. Also John Nevels is our new National Legislation Liaison for public policy. John will help coordinate efforts, work with me [Joanne Caccitore] to help you all get the information you need (stats, etc), and offer ways to accomplish this in your state. John's email is legislation@missfoundation.org.

Some of our local chapters have their own websites:

We would like to welcome to Melissa Brock who is our new Miscarriage Program Director and will spearhead an outreach in the U.S. working with Carla Hoffman, for women who have had miscarriages! As many know, their is a unique component to miscarriages which sometimes disenfranchises their loss even from our own 'groups' of parental bereavement. MISS has always embraced women in these tragic circumstances, however, we have not had entire programs to focus solely on the experience of miscarriage. Melissa joins us to help spearhead this program! Her email is melissa@missfoundation.org


Also be sure to check out the Forums on the MISS Foundation site.
We have many new offerings there including a board just for miscarriage,
for hospice information, ttc/sub preg, and so much more.
Stop by and check them all out: www.missfoundation.org/forums
