After the sudden collapse and cardiac arrest of a local athlete on the football field, these 4 individuals felt the need to take action. These individuals came together to form an organization that aims to help to prevent sudden cardiac deaths by providing free cardiac screenings to athletes in West Texas.  We are happy to report that the young athlete that inspired the creation of this organization is alive and healthy today and is back to playing the sports he loves!
