Welcome to the West Michigan Chapter of the Star Legacy Foundation!
Established in April 2017, we are a motivated group of moms that have connected over the loss of our children. We banded together when we found a need to make a difference in our community. We all agree every pregnancy deserves a happy ending, and we hope to bring that change through education and awareness in our community. We also look to bring support to other families who have gone through similar losses, and strive to be that support past the hospital setting and throughout their grief journey.
