About us

Having resources available and staying informed about the possible medical risks children are faced with, gives parents the opportunity to do their best to protect them. Touching Young Lives, Incorporated strives to ensure the health and well-being of infants and children through providing public information on best practices for infant and childcare.

How we began

In 2011, Shantell Roberts, President and Founder of Touching Young Lives Incorporated, suffered a tragic loss when her one year old daughter died due to Pneumonia. She was “diagnosed” at a prominent health facility as just having a “viral infection” also known as a common cold. Forty-eight hours after her healthcare visit, she died. Her official autopsy results indicated that she died from MRSA Pneumonia. As a parent, it is impossible to protect your child(ren) from everything.
