As a parent the one thing I always want to do is be able to protect my kids. Every parents worst fear is that doctors visit where you life changes in an instant. Most parents will never have to live with that burden and watch their sick child struggle for life. And for that we should be thankful and do all we can for those who will have to make that journey.
Do something today that could save a life. Who knows, someone else registering right now could make the difference in your life one day.
I just registered myself and it takes just a minute. There is no cost, or lengthy paperwork just a simple form.
