Not one parent in the world would want to see their child get hurt or even worse, killed from a furniture tip-over accident.

This week on Real Mom Radio, Judy Lambert joins us to share her heartfelt story of losing her daughter Katie after a piece of furniture that wasn't tethered fell over on her daughter.

The statistics are alarming.  And in part of her grieving process, Judy and her husband started the Katie Elise Lambert Foundation to raise awareness to other parents of the dangers of furniture safety.

Judy's an extraordinary mother in Philadelphia for her efforts.  Please join in celebration and awareness for Katie's 10th birthday where the Foundation is hosting their 2011 Memorial Butterfly Release.  

If you've never been to a butterfly release-it's one of the most beautiful experiences ever.  I have been given the honor to say a few words for the 3rd year in a row.  The event on June 30, 2011 from 1-3p at Jeanes Hospital in Northeast Philly.  Be sure to check out their website to find out how you can release a special butterfly for your loved one!
