Psalms 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints
Beloved daughter of Matt and Linda, Little sister of Maddie and twin sister to Seth.
Cheyenne Rose Kaiser "DinkyDoo" was born May 25,2001 and was tragiclly taken from her loving family June 12,2002, Just 18 days after celebrating her first birthday.
Cheyenne fell victim to a common household death trap,Window Blinds.
Matt and Linda suffered the greatest loss one could experience,The loss of a child. A loss that would not have happened if the makers of the blinds cared enough to make their product safe.
In 1995 there was a decision to try and make mini-blinds safer by re-designing the pull cord which raises and lowers the blinds. But the pull cord was not the problem in Cheyenne's case. It was the cords that run through the window blinds itself. Three inter-woven cords, an outside cord,inside cord and a center cord The center cord is very strechy and can be pulled out to make a noose shaped loop. This loop is what killed little Cheyenne. She pulled it out and got her head through it and before anything could be done, Cheyenne was gone.It has been determined that it took only 4 miutes for this to happen!
Since her death, Matt and Linda have been searching for parents who have lost their children in corded
window products and the results have been appalling.
Parents for Window Blind Safety Inc. Is a Non-Profit organization that was started November 2002 By Cheyenne's mommy, Linda, to educate America about the 5 ways a child can die from window covering products. PFWBS has been featured in many newspapers, newscasts and magazines in it's attemps to educate the public of the hidden dangers haning in most homes.
