Yesterday OSYA did a cardiac screening specifically Slaton ISD since they’ve had their 2nd cardiac arrest in 11 months. The chances of that happening are astronomical. We are absolutely humbled by the turn out we have for all of our cardiac screenings in terms of volunteers and participants. Yesterday was no exception. We had 109 students from Slaton come to the screening. Of those students 10 were referred for a follow-up. We also, by nothing but divine intervention found an abnormality in one of our volunteers as well. She will be seeing the cardiologist ASAP.
We were blessed to have both Xavier and Isaac at yesterday’s screening. They are the two young men that survived cardiac arrest in Slaton. They are quite literally walking miracles!! We can’t thank everyone enough for their help in making us a success!! We are blessed!

We would like to give a huge heart felt “Thank you!” to Lubbock Professional Police Association for their generous donation to our organization. It is with their assistance we were able to buy a 3rd EKG machine for our cardiac screenings. These machines from Cardiac Insight are specifically designed for young athletic hearts and will better assist us in detecting life threatening abnormalities! THANK YOU LPPA!!
