Way to Go Brentwood School in Los Angeles, California

Way to Go Brentwood School for taking the lead in Athletic Cardiac Screenings!

In conjunction with UCLA Health, the Brentwood School Athletic Department has put together an opportunity for our Middle and Upper School student-athletes to receive a comprehensive sports physical, including a cardiac screening, on Saturday, August 23, 2014. This is a great chance for your child to get pre-participation medical care from sports specific physicians to ensure your child's health going into the upcoming sports seasons. By attending this mini health fair, your student-athletes will be medically cleared to participate in all sports for the 2014-15 school year.

I hope this story brings hope to those who have a loved one who doesn't look like they will make it. With very good care, lots of prayers and lots of love, my husband made it through this life changing event.

Urgent: AEDs in Schools Bill at Critical Hearing this Thursday August 14, 2014

On Thursday, August 14th, the California Senate Appropriations Committee will have a Suspense Hearing at the conclusion of the Senate session. During this hearing, legislators will vote to lift or kill previously tabled bills, and Assembly Bill 2217 could die without your action. If enacted, AB 2217 would encourage all public schools to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) by allowing public schools the ability to solicit and receive funds to acquire and maintain an AED, if they don’t already have one. Please take action to urge the Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Kevin de León, to lift AB 2217 from the suspense file.

AB 2217 should be lifted from the suspense file for the following reasons:

An AED Might Have Saved Borislow's Life

Dan BorislowDan Borislow, the inventor of magicJack, died of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) last month after playing soccer at a community park in Jupiter, Florida. He was only 52-years-old, and is survived by a wife and children. He was one of 300,000 to 400,000 people who die each year of cardiac arrest in the United States, according to the American Heart Association.

I play in the same adult soccer league with Borislow. Athletes of all ages play on those fields. People of every age have cardiac events — even children. In fact, the organization called Parent Heart Watch consists of parents who have lost their children due to sudden cardiac death.

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.
