PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)- Greene County Tech Primary School hosted their 2nd Annual SIDS Talent Show and Silent Auction Thursday.

The show is put on in honor of Kindergarten Teacher, Andrea Moore's son Blaise, who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

"For us the most devastating thing of the whole experience is that there is no answer," said Moore. "There is no necessary right or wrong, there is no 100 percent way to know which babies are more susceptible."

She said the talent show not only honors her baby boy, but brings awareness to something that could affect anyone.

"Well it's an extremely awesome thing that everyone wants to pull together and raise awareness because it is so largely misunderstood," she said. "Still to this day people still don't have an answer for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome."

Music Teacher, Angela Greenhaw, is part of a group of teachers who helped organize the event. She said Moore has taken her tragedy and helped spread information for other parents.

"What she has done is a wonderful thing to make something positive from something that is not good for anyone to go through," said Greenhaw.

"By putting those kids on stage we're celebrating life," said Moore. "We're celebrating accomplishments that these babies have and the fact that they do get to grow up and be happy and healthy."
