MONROE - A pair of local families worked together to donate a Cuddle Cot to Monroe Clinic after losing their own newborn children to childbirth complications. Trevor and Tia Long of Brodhead worked together with Jackie and Garrik Harwick of Janesville to raise money to donate a Cuddle Cot to Monroe Clinic. A Cuddle Cot is a device that cools the body of a deceased infant, slowing decomposition and giving grieving parents more time with their child.
