A reason, a lesson, a message could save your child's life. Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

2. The ophthalmoscope needs to be used at every exam in a darkened room. It is the stethoscope for the eyes. A tumor or cataract can start to develop at anytime. (When you see the stethoscope come out for the heart...you need to see the ophthalmoscope come out for the eyes.)
3. An infant needs an eye dilation exam. One in every 677 live births in the United States has a treatable eye disease that will cause blindness if not detected and treated. Early detection and referral is the key to saving vision and, as in Joey's case, life. We would like to this done before they leave the hospital, at the 6-to-8 week well-baby exam, the 6-to-9 month well-baby exam and hopefully, one more time at the 18-month well-baby exam.

“We needed to be heard in appropriations when they stopped hearing bills in committee and went to session,” she said. “We tried to get the chairman to pull us out of committee to get to the floor. This did not happen. We had the votes on the floor. Time stopped us from getting there. We will be back in 2003 and Joey’s Bill will pass.”

“He is inside my heart, and my soul. He is my hero,” Bergsma said. She misses her little grandson, Joey.

“It is so simple. Joey should be alive. Please help me to stop this from ever happening again,” she said. “Joey is smiling...his message is being heard.”

I think what your doing is comendable. I pray this bill has passed and will be in all states. Thank you for bring this to our attention.

I commend you on your work. I have a friend who was able to save her son with a photograph. Hopefully this will become federal law.
