Guest: Darlene Shelton
Darlene Shelton is a woman of action. When she learned that emergency responders were constrained by law from administering lifesaving factor to her grandson, she didn’t just take it as another barrier in the life of a hemophiliac. Instead, Darlene began a campaign called “Danny’s Dose,” which took on the task of changing the law in their home state. She accomplished that goal within one year. Today in the state of Missouri, all people with rare diseases are able to have their lifesaving medications administered by emergency responders.
Listen to Darlene’s inspiring story and learn how you can assist in making lifesaving changes to emergency responder laws in your state, too.
