Antwon's Law - Save Our Children
We petition Congress to pass this law to keep other your athletes from senselessly losing their lives. We support "Antown's Law".
Why is this important?
My nephew, Antwon Whitehead, collapsed while at basketball practice Saturday 9/7/13 and died at age 15 years old. It was determined that Antwon had an enlarged heart. Had he received a more thorough sports physical prior to his playing, it would have been detected and Antwon's life spared. "Antwon's Law" will make it a requirement that all students who want to play sports receive a thorough physical to include an EKG and chest Xray determine any abnormalities of the heart BEFORE they are allowed to play...especially if they have family history of heart disease.
