THIS HEART MONTH JOIN US FOR THE 8TH ANNUAL TOUR DE BROWARD THIS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2017 AT MIRAMAR REGIONAL PARK – PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT JDCH HEART INSTITUTE AND OTHER PROGRAMS

Thousands gather at Miramar Regional Park united by one common cause – to support Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (JDCH). The need is greater than ever to raise funds for South Broward’s only pediatric hospital, which has become the leading children’s hospital in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In 2016, JDCH cared for more than 61,000 children needing hospital outpatient visits, nearly 7,500 pediatric surgeries, and almost 10,000 admissions and observation stays.

Funds from previous years have supported the hospital’s Heart Institute, which provides children with a complete continuum of care from diagnosis to repair of congenital defects and other cardiac dysfunctions. It houses the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program, one of only two of its kind in South Florida. Funds have also supported programs for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, helping to improve the lives of many oncology patients and families. However, this year while continuing to support these programs, the funds raised will also help support other programs throughout Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, as it aims to grow in the community and continue to expand services.

February is Heart Month!

Today marks the first day of Heart Month! Heart Month will run from Feb 1 – 28, 2017. Check back daily for exciting news and event information.

        Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American adults, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States. Nearly half of Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, obesity, physical inactivity, or an unhealthy diet. Risk also increases with age.
        Individuals of all ages can reduce their risk by making lifestyle changes and managing medical conditions with proper treatment. Take a CPR/AED class. Encourage your family members to make heart-healthy changes and offer support along the way.
        Our 2017 Heart Month focus is prevention. Learn more about heart disease prevention and heart-healthy behavior changes!
        We kick off the month with National Go Red Day on Friday, Feb. 3rd. On National Wear Red Day, be sure to wear something red to show your support for women with heart disease and stroke.

Texas Police Officer Uses CPR to Save 3-Year-Old Boy, Dramatic Save Story Caught on Dash-Cam Video – ABC News Today

aaa

Granbury, Texas, police officer, Chase Miller, was recently recognized by city officials for using CPR to save a 3-year-old boy.

On Oct. 12, Officer Miller responded to a 911 call requesting help at a Kentucky Fried Chicken for a little boy who was not breathing and unresponsive. Dash-cam footage from Miller’s vehicle showed him pulling into the restaurant’s parking lot minutes later.

The department said that after Miller got out of his vehicle, he encountered a group of people, including a crying woman carrying an unresponsive little boy in her arms.

The woman was identified as Bethany Hoover, 21, of Granbury, and the little boy as Hoover’s 3-year-old son, Brayden Geis. Brayden’s father, John Geis, 21, of Granbury, could also be seen in the video.

Hoover told ABC News today that Brayden had suffered a febrile seizure due to a cold he’d come down with.

A general manager at the Kentucky Fried Chicken, Hoover said she’d called her husband in to work as a cook that evening. She told him to bring along Brayden until her mother could come pick him up.

Hoover said at first, Brayden was playing but then started crying. She said she give him ibuprofen, but when she noticed how hot he was, she took him outside. The boy’s head was resting on his shoulder, Hoover said, and then she felt his arm go limp.

“[I] leaned him forward and he was having a seizure,” she said. “John called 911.”

Police said Miller began CPR and then had the boy’s dad continue chest compressions as he got a breathing mask. Police said that after two minutes, Miller had revived the child. Brayden was later treated by the Granbury Volunteer Fire Department and then taken to Lake Granbury Medical Center.

Hoover told ABC News that by the next day, Brayden was acting like nothing had happened though the fever still lingered.

At a City Council meeting Tuesday night, Miller was awarded the Life Saving Award for saving Brayden’s life. Miller also got to meet Brayden and his parents. The officer gave Brayden several gifts, including a toy police dog named Chase from the children’s show “Paw Patrol.”

“Officer Miller’s exceptional performance reflect great credit upon himself, the Granbury Police Department and the city of Granbury,” police said.

Hoover said that the three had visited Miller again at the police department today. She said that she and her husband had told Miller that they’d give him their world for saving Brayden.

“Our son is the world to us,” she said today. “That’s our world. That’s our life.”
