PA Law Aims to Raise Awareness About Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Her father’s death at age 26 from sudden cardiac arrest automatically put Janel Simmers into a high-risk category that meant close surveillance by a cardiologist and yearly heart screenings. 

At age 13, after a screening picked up a problem, she was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy — thickening of the walls of the heart — and not allowed to play sports anymore. 

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.
