KANSAS CITY, MO — 10-year-old Chloe Manz was born with a rare congenital heart defect. After her experience, ‘Chloe’s Law’ was created to make pulse oximetry screening mandatory on every newborn baby throughout the state before being discharged from the hospital. Chloe and her mother Kelly Manz join us to share her story and how the ‘Chloe’s Law’ testing finds the most serious heart defects before a child ever goes home from the hospital. If you’d like to help support the American Heart Association, join in on the KC Heart and Stroke Walk this Saturday, June 15.
