Families walk to remember babies who have diedPosted: Updated:
Families from across New Jersey came together Sunday in Bradley Beach to remember babies who have died.
This is the 10th annual Rock & Walk hosted by the Tears Foundation.
The foundation helps families who have lost babies pay for a funeral and other costs. But the emotional support is what these parents say means the most.
"Right after Christopher's passing it was really hard to grieve his death," says Michelle Rogers. "So I met fabulous friends who I am very close with to this day, just to get through. The grieving process was incredibly difficult so they were the only people that understood our pain."
The national chapter of the Tears Foundation was founded in 2002 by a woman who lost her son and wanted to help others in similar situations.
The New Jersey chapter started in 2010 in Bradley Beach.
