Her iPad helped save her mom’s life

For 13-year-old Asha, the iPad and cell phone were more than just electronic gizmos to text friends and play games. She used the technology to research and monitor her mother’s deteriorating heart condition, and when her mom’s heart finally failed, Asha was at her side, calling 911 and then providing doctors with the heart data that she had tracked. Her mom eventually needed a heart transplant, but her life was saved thanks to her daughter’s determination — and technology.

  1. What a wonderful testimony – both mother and daughter are blessed to have such a strong bond. Asha should be strongly encouraged and financially supported with college scholarship funding!
