Review for Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, Wexford, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (SCAF) is the leading non-profit for bringing together Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) survivors, families, super heroes and the EMS community. I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors of the Foundation with a group of Board members who are passionate, dedicated and hard working.

As a survivor of SCA and a rescuer of two SCA victims I saved with CPR, I have first hand experience with SCA recovery for both myself, my family and other SCA survivors. SCA kills over 360,000 Americans per year and the W.H.O. recently predicted that SCA will be the #1 killer in the world by the end of 2020. Through Education/SCA Awareness, Research and Community Outreach, the SCAF envisions to save all SCA victims which can be saved.

The SCAF Board and a group of fantastic volunteers work in harmony with numerous organizations in the SCA arena to stress learning CPR and placing AED's in as many public settings as possible, with the long term goal of improving SCA survival outcomes throughout the USA.

Review for Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, Wexford, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a survivor of SCA 11 years ago and having utilized CPR to save two SCA victims lives, I am indebted to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation for its tireless work to promote education relating to SCA, supporting SCA survivors and family members and for giving all surivivors and families a voice in saving lives. I was honored to join the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Board of Directors 1.5 years ago. I believe the Board is giving me and other survivors, an avenue to change the culture of performing CPR and using an AED on SCA victims and insuring that Sudden Cardiac Arrest as the number 1 killer in the USA, becomes a "household" word.
