Cleveland (AP) -- A man whose 2-year-old daughter died after receiving an improperly mixed dose of chemotherapy has started a foundation in her memory.
Chris Jerry wants lawmakers to pass a national law to monitor the work of pharmacy technicians like the one who gave his daughter, Emily, a lethal dose of saline.
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has already signed Emily's Law, which sets standards for pharmacy technicians.
But Jerry says he wants to take his cause across the country.
Jerry, of Willoughby Hills, says children are getting sick and dying because of medical mistakes.
He says Emily's foundation will also operate a web site where grieving parents can console each other and offer advice.
