We're very excited to be a part of this story in the Chicago Tribune. We are thankful for the Tribune raising awareness of hidden heart conditions in seemingly healthy young adults and the discussing the value of an EKG test in helping find these kids before it's too late. We hope an EKG test will become the standard of care for all young adults in the U.S.A.

Mother's Day is an especially challenging day for mother's whose children have died. We know that pain first hand and are driven to prevent others from experiencing that tragic loss. Thus, Screens for Teens, our cardiac screening program has served and saved many. We are very grateful to those who help raise awareness of the vital nature of our work, like Mary Anne and her son, Kevin.
We had thought last year’s Maxtravaganza would be our last, but the combination of a full, blue moon on Max’s birthday made us reconsider. We’re hoping you can join us on Max’s birthday, May 21st, at the place where he developed his passion for conservation: The Wildlife Discovery Center at Elawa Farm.
The evening starts with a champagne toast to Max on the viewing platform as the sun sets over the Middlefork Savanna with an introduction to many of the animals Max adored. Dinner will be served under twinkling lights in the main barn as the moon rises.
