Welcome to the Western NY Chapter of the Star Legacy Foundation!

The Western NY Chapter of Star Legacy Foundation was established in March 2018 and is currently located in Rochester, NY with hopes to expand into surrounding cities.  We are a team of individuals who have all been impacted by pregnancy loss. Our mission is to educate the medical community and public about stillbirth, raise funds for research, support families who experience a stillbirth and ultimately prevent the loss of children to stillbirth.
