I can not say enough about the courageous work being done by the Ken Heart Foundation. The founder, Linnette, was one of the first to reach out to me after the loss of my own son Jonathan. Our son too was living with an undetected heart syndrome whose first warning sign was sudden cardac arrest. Sudden Cardiac Arrest strikes children and youth across our nation everyday and Linette and the KHF were one of the first to start connecting the devasting losses of youth to undetected heart syndromes in a data base which has helped to raise the level of concern and awareness about SCA and youth nationally. With organization like KHF raising awareness, screening kids, and putting defibrillators where our children work and play the tradgies of SCA are reduced. Each time we prevent a death, we honor our own children.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The KHF has eagerly shared their knowledge of how to raise awareness and protect other children from SCA with countless others. Linette has mentored me in how to do the same in my own community. She has always lent her ear, heart and shoulder to those walking their own path of grief even as she had to shoulder her own.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it more funding to do more!!

When I lost my Youngest son Travis to a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Linette Derminer was one of the first people I met. Her work through her foundation (Ken Heart Foundation) inspired me to create a foundation in California to try and emulate what Linette has done. She is truly an inspiration and has made a difference in her community, her state and on a national level.

the way Linette helped me through the steps of creating my own NPO in California. Only another parent who has lost a child to Sudden Cardiac Arrest can help, and counsel, another parent who has experienced the same terrible tragedy.
