A Child Chokes to Death Once Every Five Days.

A child chokes to death once every five days, choking is the number one cause of accidental death in our school system. Current rescue protocol fails almost 30% of the time when performed by a trained medical professional.

I know these statistics because my son Camynn choked to death on a rubber ball at the age of 9 months. Fire rescue and the local  hospital tried everything but the tools and procedures they had did not work. My situation is not an isolated one. 5000 people choke to death each year in the United States. I don't want anyone else to feel the pain that my family and friends are feeling.

There is a bill that is being presented to the Wisconsin State Senators next month that needs your support. If approved, the state would provide grant money for schools to implement airway clearing devices such as LifeVac. These devices are inexpensive, easy to use and highly effective in a choking emergency.

I am trying to turn my family tragedy into something positive by preventing this from happening to another child. Please sign this petition to show the senate your support. My family thanks you in advance for your support.
