What Nicole Kidman Would Like You to Know

Nicole Kidman's father died from sudden cardiac arrest. Here's what she would like you to know.

Sudden cardiac arrest kills one person every two minutes. That is about 400,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. That’s half of all heart disease deaths.

Those deaths afflict seemingly healthy people of all ages and races, often without warning, including one in nine men. It is less common in women, but they are 50% less likely to receive bystander help.

I hope it is ok for me to use this site. I am actually from Canada but own property in Florida & couldn't find something comparable inCanada. My husband suffered SCA last November, 2016 while out for a drive in his sportscar on one of the last nice days before winter set in. It was a beautiful day & everyone was outside doing yard work. He was pulling into his friend's driveway when he blacked out. He rolled into a parked van & the noise alerted the neighbours on the street. They pulled him from the car, started CPR & EMS, Fire & police were there soon after. They shocked him twice & he was transferred to a Cardiac Intervention Centre immediately. He spent 9 days in ICU sedated & on a ventilator. On the 12th day he had an ICD implanted. He lost 25 lbs in the hospital & was very weak. It was a long struggle. He started Cardiac Rehab & was doing great until 3 weeks ago when he was shocked 35 times - out of the blue.

Mission & Vision
