With help from your donation, we believe that sudden cardiac deaths (SCD) in youth can be prevented by:
The Kristoffer Larsen BIG HEART Memorial Foundation help funds initiatives that aligns with these believes. We helped fund the 2018 Cardiac Screening at Geneva High School where 1488 students were tested and 7 were determined to have abnormal EKG’s. The goal is to make this a recurring program. Currently, we are in discussions with several schools and universities to help them establish such programs as well. In January of 2018, we met with the IHSA (Illinois High School Association) and it initiated an effort to develop a statewide SCD prevention program.
