help bring an end to vehicular heatstroke tragedies

Our loved ones are more than a number. Our children are being sacrificed daily due to senseless and preventable accidents. It is our mission to raise global awareness to vehicular heatstroke tragedies. 

Learn How You Can Support Our Mission

To prevent more tragedies from VH, we need your help. Here’s how you can support our cause to ensure our children are protected.

Bringing Awareness To Local Communities

Get involved and see how we are teaming up with our local partners to set new standards in vehicular heatstroke prevention.

Learn How you Can Help Prevent PVH

Awareness matters. Learn more about pediatric vehicular heatstroke and how you can help bring an end to these tragedies.

910 children have died from Pediatric Vehicular Heatstroke (PVH) since 1990. We're on a mission to change that.

We have to give children the care, time and support they deserve. We will bring awareness to the importance of child safety, especially during the hot summers. We plan to engage with numerous childcare centers to help bring awareness to the importance of preventing the same tragedy that we lived.

We believe that we must keep RJ's memory alive forever. We will always fight to bring awareness to vehicular heat strokes and help to facilitate change for others.

The last thing my family expected was the sudden and tragic death of our only son Raymond Pryer Jr. aka ‘RJ’. RJ was only 3 years old when he was left in a HOT daycare van after a field day outing in Houston, TX. 

Raymond was found in the Discovery Me Academy’s daycare van upon the arrival of his father on the evening of Thursday July 19, 2018. As you can imagine this devastated our family and friends. Anyone who knows us knows how much we loved our only son.

Prevention in action
