John Taylor Babbitt Foundation Makes Generous Donation to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation

PITTSBURGH, PA--The John Taylor Babbitt Foundation donated $5,000 to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation at its annual Board of Directors meeting on Saturday.

The JTB Foundation was established in memory of John Babbitt, who was 16-years-old when he collapsed and died from an undiagnosed heart condition while playing basketball in his Youth Ministry league in 2006. The JTB Foundation mission is to increase awareness about the severity and prevalence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy within the young adult community.

PITTSBURGH, PA--Five years ago, Sue Hostler, of Bradford Woods, PA, helped save the life of Bob Hallinan, who had collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest in an elevator in a remote area of the Philadelphia airport. She had heard about “hands-only CPR,” and so she pushed hard and fast on the center of his chest for 17 minutes, while waiting for professional help.

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.
