Share Your Story: The Thomas Family from Syracuse

 

Talk about advocacy in action?  You're the Cure advocates have been working hard in Albany and across the state to make Pulse Ox screening a requirment for all babies in New York. Just ask the Thomas family from Syracuse. They know firsthand the impact pulse ox can have: it saved their son’s life. Jacob appeared to be a healthy newborn. Thankfully at 2 days old, before he left the hospital, Jacob had a pulse ox screening which caught a life-threatening heart defect. Jacob’s mom, Kelsey, will tell you her son is alive today because he received pulse ox screening. She won’t rest until all New York newborns have the same chance at life. Will you help?
