Survivor and Spouse Crusade to Save More Lives in Iowa

May 13, 2008 – HUMESTON, IA ­– Students, staff, and visitors at any school building in Wayne County, Iowa, are now a little more protected from the number-one killer of Americans--sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)---and soon all the citizens of Wayne County in rural south central Iowa will be a little safer.

After Butch Gibbs of Humeston suffered SCA in his home on April 2, 2004, and was saved by his wife, Susie’s immediate start of CPR and the quick arrival of the Humeston First Responders with their automated external defibrillator (AED), the couple began promoting the use of CPR and AEDs. 

There has to be a reason I survived,” said Butch Gibbs, “and I believe that reason is to spread awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and the importance of knowing how to do CPR and how to use an AED so that others may have the same chance I did.”

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
