KEN HEART FOUNDATION
June 26, 2010

I would like to nominate the Ken Heart Foundation because of all the wonderful things the foundation does for families and the community. My mother’s mission started on 6/7/2000 when her son collapsed on the football field during a mini camp. Her son (Kenneth) had an undetected heart defect and passed away that day. Through this tragedy she gathered strength and told her self that she would not let this happen to another family and Kenneth’s death would not be in vain. My mother (Linette Derminer) started doing her own research about heart defects and other families were coming out of the woodwork that the same incidences happed to them. She learned about AED's and how affective they are for revival of a cardiac arrest. She started her own heart foundation; kids endanger now (K.E.N). She hosts her own fundraisers in hopes to raise money so she can place AED’s in schools and athletic groups. One of the biggest highlights of the foundation was that she donated a difbulator to a YMCA and a man went in cardiac arrest and he was revived for that same AED. She is also involved in parent heart watch, which is an organization that helps consol other families who had lost a loved one from a heart defect. My mother deserves some recognition for her great efforts, and I think this would be a wonderful achievement for her. The KEN Heart Foundation is helping to train high school student how to be first responders in CPR and also raising money to give free heart screening to kids who can’t afford the screening.

The Great!
