On February 22, 2001, eighteen-month old Josie King died from medical errors.

98,000 people die every year from medical errors, making it one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

The Josie King Foundation’s mission is to prevent others from dying or being harmed by medical errors. By uniting healthcare providers and consumers, and funding innovative safety programs, we hope to create a culture of patient safety, together.
Woman's Day magazine recently recognized Sorrel as one of 50 women who are changing the world. For more information, please visit the magazine's website.

On Monday (the ninth anniversary of Josie's death), Sorrel's book, Josie's Story, was named by the National MS Society as the winner in the "First Book" category of their Books for a Better Life Award.
