Personal Note: My youngest son, Cody, died on May 6, 2012 at the age of 18. He was an athlete preparing for college football. I am now actively involved promoting heart screening in our young athletes throughout the state of Texas. I work with Texas school districts promoting the inclusion of heart screenings (ECG’s) with their athletic physicals. In 2013 and again in 2015, bills were introduced in the Texas Legislature to make this a part of the sports physicals at my request.
