Latest on the Emerson Rose Heart Foundation

September 25, 2012

Just about a year ago, a Clemson couple shared their personal story and anguish about having lost a newborn daughter just 76 days after her birth to a congenital heart defect. Susan and Jason Smith vowed to do what they can to raise awareness and money to fight congenital heart defects and established the Emerson Rose Heart Foundation, in the name of their late daughter. In a year’s time, Susan’s husband, Jason, says there has been progress. Six hospitals benefiting from funds raised by the Emerson Rose Heart Foundation include the Smith’s home hospital, Oconee Medical Center. But the goal is to ensure that all South Carolina hospitals can purchase the equipment needed to screen all discharged newborns. You can help by signing up for a golf tournament to benefit the foundation. It takes place Friday, October 26 at Anderson’s Brookstone Country Club. 96.3/WGOG will carry more information about the tourney. But you can learn more by calling 864/710-1401 or by clicking
