The Slade Dozier Foundation was founded in 2016 by Laura and Tom Dozier in memory of their son, Slade. The Foundation’s mission is to “to raise awareness of and to facilitate research toward understanding and preventing SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood).” The Foundation seeks to fulfill Laura and Tom’s vision by funding SUDC research, helping educate medical examiners about SUDC cases and their role in the research process, and caring for the families affected.
