One little girl's life will help change hundreds, hopefully thousands, of children's lifes around the world. In 2007 Raven Maria Blanco, was a normal, healthy, loving child. Her parents took her to the dentist for a routine check-up and cleaning. She never returned home. Instead, under her dentist’s care, Raven’s life slipped away. The medical conditions that led to her death are complex, but this fact remains: when problems developed, the dentist’s office was inadequately prepared to address the crisis.

In honor of Raven’s memory, her parents and extended family established the Raven Maria Blanco Foundation, Inc. (RMBF) a 501 (c) (3) charity with the central objective of advocating for medical emergency preparedness (MEP) in the dental office.

You can live past this moment
Let my story change your life
There is hope for another
Change the world one at a time

Let the thoughts of me be the strength you need
