With your support, we are saving lives. It has been a dream to help heart patients within our region. Our first goal is to fund heart screenings for our youth within our region late summer of 2013. The youth do not need to be athletes to be screened. The screening will be include a limited echo (ultrasound of the heart), EKG and some blood work. A pediatric cardiologist will be reading all the tests and will notify the family if any further workup will be needed.
