Meet Taylor

Taylor was a day shy of turning two months old when she was tragically shaken by her biological father. By that night, over half her brain would die. Miraculously, Taylor survived those long three weeks in hospital. Today, Taylor has a smile that is contagious to all around her and has a special bond with her younger brother, but Taylor will never live on her own, never drive or ever get married.

Meet Kyra

Four-month-old Kyra was taken to the emergency room when she started having seizures. Doctors diagnosed Kyra with abusive head trauma, and her father was arrested after admitting to shaking her when he grew frustrated with her crying. Remarkably, Kyra is overcoming the odds and developing on track. Her story serves as the inspiration behind One Shake Is All It Takes, an organization dedicated to the prevention of SBS.

Meet Austin

Austin was shaken near to death on December 7, 2000 when he was just 2 ½ years old and would spend the next 2 ½ weeks in a coma. Austin fought to survive, regaining consciousness just before Christmas.  Now a teenager, Austin can barely walk and struggles every day with depression and extreme anxiety. Austin doesn’t know that life isn’t this hard for everyone. He doesn’t know how to give up or stop trying.
