On July 23, the Nora Madelyn Fund for Infant and Child Loss and the Providence Newberg Medical Center’s Perinatal Loss Committee will host the 15th annual remembrance ceremony for families who have lost a child or children in pregnancy or as an infant.

The ceremony will be held in the Providence Newberg Medical Center’s Healing Garden. Families will be able to release a butterfly in memory of their child or children.

Please RSVP by July 19 to or (503) 537-1621 with your name, how many will attend, and, if you wish to participate, the name of your baby or babies to be honored with a butterfly release.

This is an in-person event. The ceremony will be photographed, but not recorded. Butterflies will not be available for pick-up. If you are unable to attend the event, your butterfly will be released by a volunteer.
