We did it...Pulse ox is law!

by on Friday, August 2, 2013

Thanks to your help, Gov. Cuomo signed the Pulse Ox bill into law! Soon all babies in NYS will be screened for critical congenital heart defects. This victory wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our passionate volunteers and dedicated staff.  Thank you to everyone, including our red cape heroes, for contributing to our success and helping babies have a healthy start!   Jack, 5. Aedan, 22 months old. Jacob, 15 months old. Colton, 2 and their families did something amazing: they have helped pass this law. All were born with a congenital heart defect.  They and their parents have met with their legislators, hosted a press conference, and been interviewed in the media about their efforts to get the Pulse Ox bill passed and signed into law.   Congratulations!
