I Rode with A Warrior

image

I met this fellow pink warrior while preparing to ride in the Tour De Pink which is a bike ride to raise money for breast cancer. I spent 2.5 days laughing, riding,  eating, and sharing with this brave soul and had no clue that she was battling terminal breast cancer. Today she announced via Facebook that the doctors have given her weeks to live and I am asking for you to keep her in prayer. God is the only one who knows when we will  reach that final stretch.

This is another reminder to not only remain vigilant about your health but to live each day as though it is your last and with no regrets.

Kara Guzzetti, I salute you for sharing your strength with me and showing the world that you can fight with a smile!

Car Seat Safety Tips By the experts at Safety 1st

Importance of Rear Facing

In March of 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated their car seat recommendations advising that children should remain rear facing until the age of two. According to a study in the Journal of Injury Prevention children under the age of two are 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. When a child is rear facing their head, neck and spine are better supported and in the event of an accident, crash forces are distributed over the child’s entire body.

Location

Typically the center rear seat is the safest place for a car seat, and never install a car seat in the front seat. If your car does not have a latch connector for the middle seat, you can use the middle seat belt to properly secure the base. When installing, make sure the base of the car seat moves no more than an inch from side to side. An easy way to test this is to hold at the belt path.

Car Seat Expiration

Car seats do have an expiration date, it is recommended that car seats be replaced every 5-8 years, or immediately after a crash. The reason for an expiration date is because plastic can warp and materials can fray, which can make car seats not as effective in the event of a crash. Additionally car seat technology and state and federal car seat regulations change over time. Important warning labels may wear out and instruction books may get lost, which can lead to improper use of the car seat.

Safeguard the Car

Childproof the inside of the car and eliminate projectiles. Anything in the car that is not secured is a possible projectile – even a child’s toy, or a water bottle. In a crash, objects take on greater weight due to crash forces.
