Review for Simons Heart, Lafayette Hill, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I learned about Simon's Fund several years ago and was immediately drawn to their story. Since I have been helping the organization generate publicity. I have attended many of their screenings and watched families have the opportunity to learn whether their child was at serious risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and if so, be directed to the proper medical professionals to keep their child safe. In addition, I was honored to be part of the organization's lobbying effort to make PA the first state to pass legislation to protect student athletes. Since, they have worked tirelessly to spread the legislation to other states, and are succeeding in doing so. This organization combines passionate dedication to a cause with an ability to navigate the system and get things done expediently -- that is unusual in a small non profit.

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

Add additional professional staff so that efforts are less reliant on volunteers, and do additional board training and perhaps board outreach to ensure that the organization is maximizing the power and abilities of its board.
