Ruth Ann's Story -- 

Twenty-eight years ago in June, my 7 year old son went in to have surgery for his tonsils; routine surgery that his sister had a few months before. Our small town hospital was going through bankruptcy but the anesthesiologist refused to do the surgery without dantrolene…even though, at the time, we had no knowledge of MH running in our family. Praise the Lord! Our son was life flighted out due to an MH crisis during the surgery. After the MH episode, it was suggested that my family be tested for MH. My son’s father also has MH. My son and his family now wear medic alert bracelets. If that anesthesiology hadn’t made sure he was prepared, who knows that would have happened. Knowledge is power.
