THE STORY:

Life is short, but it becomes shorter for a kid who is unable to swim to save his/her life. By doing the 24hour swim challenge, I want to do my bit in raising awareness around Childhood drowning prevention. As a mom of an amazing 2 year old, I always wonder and worry about the "What ifs". What if my daughter falls in our pool, while I just looked away for 2 minutes ? What if on a hike near a lake/ocean a child's curiosity leads him/her to wander off and fall in the lake/ocean"? It takes just a second for accidents to happen and we can play/replay it in our heads but at that moment we can't do much.  We can'tchange the course of the accidents and what the future has in store, but we can equip parents and caretakers with awareness, tools and funds to train their kids and prevent the "what ifs". Please join me so that we can tackle the "what ifs" and prevent children from drowning.

This donation is in honor of my daughter, Sofia, because she was a "what if" - at 2 years of age, she nearly drowned. It was a spring afternoon, 2 moms and 5 kids were having a fun playdate at a neighborhood pool. Sofia was in the hottub with me with a floating kickboard while the others who could swim well were in the pool. My middle child has cerebral palsy and low muscle tone, but was an OK swimmer. I ran out of the hottub for 1 minute to help my other son out of the water and turned to Sofia and I didn't see her. She was face up, purple, not breathing. I pulled her out, did infant CPR, breathed into her with all my mommy dispair and love, and she came to. While all that was happening, my oldest son (at the time 9 years old), ran into the house and called 911. The parametics came and assessed my daughter and still took her down to Children's Hospital for observation. When we got there, nurses came over to us to just see that we were ok because so many drowning cases don't come in breathing. We stayed for a while to check her heart and see that she was ok. Dry drowning is the next fear, so I stayed awake all night watching her breath. The next day I had to take her into the pediatrician and we cried together because she knew I would have only looked away for 1 minute, she had known me for many years and knew the kind of mom I was. I am one of the lucky ones. My daughter was always a gift from God, but now she is on this earth for a REAL reason because she was given life again. 2 years ago
