We Are One Step Closer to Protecting Our Kids Hearts!

by Allyson P. on Monday, November 18, 2013

The Senate voted on two of our critical pieces of legislation, requiring Pulse Ox Screening for Newborns and CPR Training for Coaches. They took it up quickly because of advocates like you and our dedicated legislative champions. This is a great first step in requiring two critical that will protect the hearts of our children!

But we are not done; we need the House to act quickly. If you know your Representative reach out today and ask them to support this lifesaving legislation.  With your help we can make sure that no parent leaves the hospital with a baby they think and hope is healthy only to find out that a heart defect could have been detected with a simple test, pulse ox. With your help we can make sure that every time a student athlete is practicing or playing a game, match or meet that their coach knows the lifesaving skill of CPR. I can't thank our advocates enough for their continued advocacy and hope that I will be reaching out again soon with news that the bill is heading to the Governor.
