Nick of Time Foundation Conducts Heart Screenings

BOTHELL, WA--It is unthinkable that two seemingly healthy high school students would collapse and die from sudden cardiac arrest, yet that's exactly what's happened.

In just the past month, two Washington teenagers died from sudden cardiac arrest.

Cody Sherrell, a 14-year-old from La Center, collapsed at basketball practice and later died.

And a month earlier, 15-year-old John Hayes suffered cardiac arrest on the school bus on the way home from Richland High School.

Stories like those spur on volunteers from the Nick of Time Foundation, named for another seemingly healthy teenager who died from a heart condition.

On Wednesday they hosted a heart screening clinic at Bothell High School.

Mom Kerry Godwin was there, looking on anxiously as her son, Connor, had an echocardiogram.

"Hoping that it's normal and it comes out normal," she said during the ultrasound.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest.
