This page is dedicated to those disabled adults and children who were murdered by their care providers. It is a scrolling tribute, to remind us that as we are reading this list someone is being harmed by those people meant to keep them from harm. End this cycle.
Parents, Care Providers Guard your physical and mental health. Reach out to get help immediately if you
- are sad all-day
- are in constant fear what will happen to your disabled child if you should die
- are forgetting to eat, neglecting your disabled loved one, not caring for yourself
- are unable to control your child's SIBs or meltdowns
