Every baby born at MGH and other participating facilities in Indiana will receive a red hat to help spread awareness. The hats are all unique and handmade by around 230 volunteers, according to a press release from the American Heart Association.

Tina Stanley, also known as Tina Francesca, 40, was charged May 5, 2017 with eight level six felony charges. A level six felony charge carries a maximum sentence of 2 1/2 years. In December 2016, Stanley began lying about a recent diagnosis of breast cancer to friends on social media. The defendant, according to police, sold “Team Tina” T-shirts and “Tina Strong” wrist bracelets to finance expected cancer treatments. No charity or cancer treatment service has received money from Stanley, had direct contact with her, or could verify her supposed cancer diagnosis.
