Petitioning State Representative Garland Pierce and 2 others

Pass Reegan's Rule. A law that will encourage any Physician caring for a child ages birth to 5 years to discuss signs and symptoms of diabetes with parents. It may not be a virus or flu.

Reegan Karice Oxendine was our little girl. She was called to Heaven on September 20, 2013 due to undiagnosed diabetes. Reegan started getting noticably sick at 14 months. We took her to the doctor numerous times where she was misdiagnosed with acid reflux. While we waited for this medicine to start working her symptoms progressed and we took her to the emergency room where her blood sugar level was over 1,100. She was airlifted to Chapel Hill where they found her sugar lever had been elevated for 3 months. Which means that if this rule was in place her diabetes would have been caught and we could have made  a difference for her. We were too late to save Reegan but we can stop this from happening to another family. Please help us pass Reegan's Rule.
