Simon and Back to the Future

We share this with all the respect in the world to Simon, on his 11th birthday, the Sudman family, and all other families in past, present and future who have lost (or will lose)a child from unknown, but easily detectable heart conditions. Please take a moment to read and share!

If you have a child, or grandchildren, or great grandchildren… please make sure to have their hearts checked with an ekg periodically. It takes 2 minutes, is painless and could save their life.

Let’s let our friends at Simon’s Fund help educate us on the most common heart conditions that cause SCA in student athletes.  Most of these conditions are easily identified with proper pre-participation heart screening.  Help spread the word and get our young screened properly!
