Mom to two boys but I only get to hold one. My second son, Corbin, gained his angel wings May 17th, 2011 from heart defects. I now advocate for heart health and pulse ox (heart defect) testing.

I, along with two heart moms and the American Heart Assocation have successfully gotten a law passed in WV that requires every newborn to be tested for heart defects using pulse ox before they leave the hospital. All in honor of my son, my Peanut, Corbin.
