The Serious Fright Lurking in Our Communities

When we think of October, Halloween typically comes to mind; when dressed as monsters, ghosts and goblins, we take delight in spooky costumes and scaring others. Sadly, there’s a serious, legitimate fright lurking within our community every month of the year that strikes out-of-the-blue, but wears no disguise. Most of us don’t know about the threat of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

SCA is an electrical disruption of the heart’s normal rhythm. It is not the same as a heart attack. The only way to survive SCA is with CPR and shocks administered from an automated external defibrillator (AED).

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.
