‘Unimaginable’: Miscarriages, newborn death led Nassau mom to help other grieving parents.

In 2019 Meredith “Mera” Maimone only lived nine days. Her mother Kim Maimone of Fernandina Beach has used her loss to start a nonprofit that brings other families’ comfort.

Formed in 2020, Mera’s Mission works with people who’ve suffered through miscarriages or suffered from the loss of children in infancy or early childhood. Kim Maimone and other volunteers run support groups, remembrance and awareness projects, and an annual Walk of Light remembrance walk.

In addition, Mera’s Mission raised funds to purchase three Caring Cradles and donated them to Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Baptist Medical Center Clay and UF Health Jacksonville.
