Our mission is to prevent death from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and sudden cardiac arrest by raising awareness, enabling research, and donating automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to places that need them. We also provide CPR/AED training and host free community ECG screenings for children, teens, and young adults.
