Dennis Quaid to spend down time with his family

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Dennis Quaid, wife Kimberly and their two-year-old twins will be summering at their home in Big Sky Country — Montana. He’s looking forward to some down time with the family after a hectic Spring that saw him wrap production of the big-screen ‘Soul Surfer,’ carry out promotional chores for his ‘The Special Relationship’ movie, and do a full court media press for the cause that’s at the forefront of his mind — patient safety advocacy.

You may recall that in 2007, at 12 days old, twins Thomas and Zoe Quaid were accidentally given an overdose of the blood thinner heparin — 10,000 units instead of the recommended 10 units for babies — and the following two days literally fought for their lives. Since then, the Quaids sued the drug manufacturer they blamed for poor labeling. They started a foundation to improve medical procedures. They learned frightening statistics about the numbers of mistakes made in hospitals. Dennis has made numerous appearances domestically and overseas, including doing the Discovery Channel’s documentary series, ‘Chasing Zero: Winning the War on Healthcare Harm.’ The Quaids’ foundation has now partnered with The Texas Medical Institute of Technology (TMIT) as their crusade continues.
