Like so many child safety initiatives that have come before it, Life Jackets for Life was started by a grieving parent and made a reality by family and friends.
Cara McNulty suffered the loss of her young son Joshua Steinburg, aged 11 in a boating accident. Cara researched the law and drowning statistics and realized how simple, minor amendments to a regulation could save the lives of hundreds of children and spare others from the same loss and grief.
It’s unfortunate that it takes a grieving parent to push for change. Those who have suffered the loss of a child know what’s it’s like to wear the heartbreak every day. We try to not only spare other parents from that fate but to bring lasting meaning to the lives of our lost and precious children.
