Saundra Latham started this petition to Texas State House and

Too many lives are lost due to gross medical negligence. Texas only gives 2 years in the statue of limitations for wrongful death. It took 2 years for the Texas Medical Board to say they found something. Now we sit here in limbo because even though the Dr in question might lose his license, he might have a public discipline action.  No attorney will help us cause of the statue of limitations. 

We tried after Tony died, had all the paper proof one could ask. Attorney after attorney said they wanted too, but that the Drs attorneys would have us ties up in court. One said we did not have the right to sue cause Texas State legislative lobbyists had made it impossible to sue.  The hardest thing i can write is this:  we know that there is nothing we can do to bring back our son, but if something good comes out of this, then it is not in vain.

Tony died on September 2017, because his cardiologist team at UT physicians ignored his EKGs for months, his dr admitted that the EKGs just became so routine that they missed it. They ignored his symptoms. Performed open heart surgery based on an echo the day after mothers day when he was 10 months old while in active pulmonary hypertension.  Four months later Tony would be given a medicine called Precedex, not FDA approved for adults with heart problems much less children under 2. Tony was underlying awake coding 5 times before I would kiss my sons lips as he passed away in my arms.

My family deserves justice, our son deserves justice. Dr Matthew Brown and his team at UT Physicians should be held responsible like any other manslaughter case. My petition is 2 part, pleading the Texas supreme court  to hear my case and to extend the medical malpractice statue of limitations with children born with complex medical conditions.
