"I have always held firmly to the thought that
each one of us can do a little
to bring some portion of misery to an end."
     ...Albert Schweitzer
The Ronald Andrew Holloway Foundation grew from a desire to do our part to bring a medical misery to an end.

On February 2, 2005, Ronald Andrew Holloway, eight pounds and fifteen ounces, was delivered with Apgar scores of zero as a result of experiencing a gross lack of oxygen just prior to his birth. Andrew lived seven days on life support. On February 9, 2005, Andrew was removed from his machines. He died peacefully in the arms of his mother and father.

Andrew's death was completely preventable. It resulted from a combination of an off-label drug medication, given to his mother to induce her labor, and an appalling failure of the attending medical personnel to provide Andrew's mother with a basic level of medical care during her labor and delivery.

The death of any child is a tragedy. The preventable, senseless death of a child compounds this tragedy into one of incomprehensible proportions.

The Ronald Andrew Holloway Foundation seeks to prevent others from experiencing this loss while honoring the brief life of a loved and much-anticipated little boy.

The Ronald Andrew Holloway Foundation provides informed speakers on topics of
Medical Rights and Responsibilities
Off-Label Drug Medication
Legislative Reform to Require Informed Consent for Off-Label Drug Medication and
Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome: the Most Mis-Diagnosed Condition in Women.

The Foundation works to educate the public about these topics, encourages dialogue between physicians and lay persons, and supports legislation that requires informed consent for off-label medication.
