Toby’s Story & Our Mission
The Little Fox was created in memory of Tobias “Toby” Graham Stern, who passed away on August 24, 2016 from SIDS. His parents, Katie & Dan Stern, created a 501(c)3 non-profit in his memory. Toby’s Foundation works to educate on the importance of Safe Sleep Practices for infants, provides insight on sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and supports families (parents, siblings, grandparents, and extended family) who are grieving the loss of an infant.
It is our mission to ensure that every baby sleeps safely. This can happen through education and the correct tools and resources for families with a new baby. Daniel and Katie Stern also believe that there is enormous room for growth, when it comes to supporting families who are grieving the death of a child. Every time they are able to share their story, speak about Toby, and about their family’s grief, their hope is that their efforts can help another parent or family.
In addition, The Little Fox is dedicated to partnering with local organizations in the Pittsburgh area to spread joy to families and children, in the community, the way Toby brought joy to his family for the 12 weeks that he was here on Earth.
