November 30th Lets wear PINK for heart babies.

Raygen's heart defect was discovered before birth, but a lot of babies are not so lucky.  November 30th is Newborn Heart Defect Screening day.  It's such a simple test that can saves so many lives.  It's a little probe (like in the picture above) wrapped around the babies hand or foot and quickly reads their oxygen saturation and heart rate.
Please wear pink on November 30th in honor of this special day for babies.  Let's bring awareness and save lives.  Tell someone who is pregnant to make sure they have their baby's oxygen levels screened before leaving the hospital.  Spread the word.

I want to thank Stephanie (http://whenlifehandsyouabrokenheart.blogspot.com/) for letting us know about November 30th and to wear pink.

Remember 1 in every 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect.  They all have a greater chance of survival if it is discovered early.  This simple test can save so many babies.
