Sinnamon BoveryOn January 25, 1996 Sinnamon Bovery’s son Jackson Grey Moore(Grey) was born. Thought to be healthy, he went home two days later. After less than an hour in his new home, Grey’s color had changed and he was lifeless. Sinnamon called for help and Grey’s father Daniel ran into the room and began CPR. Her mother called 911, and within minutes police arrived and took over. After a long ambulance ride to the hospital, and 45 minutes of CPR, baby Grey finally took a breath on his own. Because the CPR instructor at Daniel’s work convinced him to take a refresher course he was able to take action immediately. That combined with the quick arrival of the police and paramedics and the knowledgeable staff at TC Thompson Children’s Hospital, Grey is now in junior high school. Sinnamon is a proud volunteer and often shares their survival story.
