On November 15th, 2016 Dr. Williams experienced the stillbirth of her son Liam Elijah Wesley Boatwright and on November 28th, 2016 took her pain and turned it into purpose by establishing Liam Lives Foundation, Inc.– A faith-based, non-profit charitable organization, which seeks to provide counseling and supportive services to families who have suffered from pregnancy and infant loss due to early miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm birth, neonatal, and post-neonatal death.
Through Liam Lives, families have received counseling and support group services, financial services to assist with funeral arrangements, headstones, and memory boxes to help with grief and memorialize their child. The foundation also provides free Angel gowns for the babies burial, and education on the impact of pregnancy loss and infant death on mental health, family, and the community. The organization has made a local, national, and international impact reaching families in Florida, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, Utah, Indiana, Washington, Jamaica, Haiti, Italy, India, Kenya, and South Africa.
Dr. Williams was afforded the opportunity to travel internationally to Haiti and Kenya. While in Haiti she conducted a workshop at Dr. Raoul Pierre-Louis Hospital with local women who experienced pregnancy loss and doctoral students. Her trip to Kenya provided her the opportunity to conduct a full-day workshop with community workers, loss moms, and their supporters in Bungoma County.
Liam Lives Foundation successfully raised funds to purchase a Cuddle Cot to place in UF Health- Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center South. The Cuddle Cot is a cooling system used to provide families, who have experienced early miscarriage and stillbirth, with the gift of time. The foundation’s goal is to place a Cuddle Cot in every Jacksonville area hospital.
Dr. Williams hopes to use her personal experiences to increase awareness surrounding pregnancy loss and infant death and its impact on families. In 2019, Dr. Williams published her first book entitled Worth Fighting For a memoir
