Review for Travis R Roy Sudden Cardiac Arrest Fund, Temecula, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Travis R. Roy Sudden Cardiac Arrest Fund is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the placement of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in every school and school district throughout the nation. The Fund's founders are our neighbors, Bob and Diana Roy, loving parents who tragically lost their 14 year old son, Travis, to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The Roys are determined to do whatever they can to make certain no more kids die at school because of the unavailability of an AED. Their efforts have been amazing, and they have persuaded numerous school districts in California to include AEDs in their budgets. And while they have been successful, there is a great deal more ground to cover to ensure that all schools have these life-saving machines, which is why I am writing this review. THIS FUND IS WORTHY OF YOUR DONATION, large or small. All of the monies the Fund receives goes toward the purchase of AEDs which are then donated, often in person, to schools in memory of their son. We have known the Roys a long time, and they are honest, hard-working, unassuming folks who give so generously of themselves, their knowledge and their time as they work to honor Travis through this endeavor. If you donate to their Fund, you can rest assured that every penny will go toward AED purchases for schools. It is impossible to sufficiently express how worthwhile this nonprofit truly is. There are many good causes in the world: we think this one is the BEST.

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

I can't imagine how it could be improved except to wish that our family had millions of dollars to donate to the Travis R. Roy Sudden Cardiac Arrest Fund. That way, they could grow and expand, and be able to bring not only AEDs to every school, but also AED and CPR Education to students, faculty and parents. What could be more worthwhile than saving a life?
