On September 2nd, 2015, Heather & Daniel Pfeffer were devastated when their 27 month old daughter, Saige Liat, remained unconscious after being rescued within minutes of her accidental drowning. After intubation and several rounds of CPR at a local hospital, her heartbeat returned and she was transferred by EMS to a level 3 trauma center. In the ambulance, Heather was told, "You will talk about this at her wedding." Despite her medical team’s efforts, the next 36 hours proved much different - on the morning of September 4th, precious Saige passed away. With her infectious smile and open arms, Saige was a gift not only to her parents, but to everyone who knew her. Her short life was too special to be forgotten. To ensure that her legacy of happiness and joy lives on, Heather & Dan created the Spreading Smiles for Saige foundation in honor of Saige Liat Pfeffer.




To date, Spreading Smiles for Saige raised funds in order to generate more amusement and delight in the world. It is a tribute to Saige, as she would have done just that had she been given the opportunity.

Undergoing cancer treatment can be an uncertain, scary time for families, as standard childhood activities take a backseat to getting better. The Children’s Joy Fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) provides vital support to the Child Life and Recreational Programs, which serves more than 350 children and young adults each day on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Programs are offered for all age ranges, including patient education, arts and crafts, music, group games, cooking, holiday and birthday parties and other activities.


In 2019, we are taking on a bigger mission: DROWNING PREVENTION
