Nebraska Mom Advocates for Newborn Heart Screening

by Pamela M. on Monday, January 14, 2013

Cole Klein, 10, was born with a serious congenital heart defect that wasn't caught until he suffered congestive heart failure at 53 days old. His mother, Tiffany Mytty-Klein, explains why she believes that a screening at birth could save kids like Cole from serious complications or death. A measuure in the Nebraska Legislative session could ensure that all newborns are screened for heart conditions before they leave the hospital.
