Dennis and Jennifer Yancey started the Sam's Pond foundation to reach out to others in the Kansas City area who are searching for support in times of loss.

Samuel Isaiah Yancey was born July 29, 2010, sixteen weeks before his due date.  Because he was severally premature and had many complications, Dennis and Jennifer had to make the dreaded decision to release their precious son from this world into the next. They released him on August 11, 2010 surrounded by family and friends.  

During their time of great sorrow, Jennifer searched for a support group to help her with her feelings and questions. To her amazement she found no such program in this area.  So she took it upon herself, with support of her husband and friends, to created Sam's Pond - Support and Mentoring by Sharing for Parents Of Neonatal Death, pregnancy loss, and stillbirth. This group was created to promote healing and support for those who have experienced a loss that is often too taboo to discuss.  We also offer support to those who do not understand but want to help those they love who are suffering.
