Living 4 Zachary - Stop Sudden Cardiac Arrest

During the last month or so, Kari and Co. has had the pleasure of working with the Living 4 Zachary Foundation. Many times building a website is just that, a website. But working with Karen Schrah (Zac's mom) and the Living4Zachary family has been something that has touched our lives and will forever stay with us. We are so very proud to have been a part of their new website.

Living4Zachary.org is a foundation dedicated to spreading the awareness of SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) in youth.

On April 2, 2009 Karen and Troy Schrah lost their 16 year old son, Zachary due to SCA. He was a healthy, vibrant young man who loved life... and, after a normal off-season football workout with the Plano East Football Team, he collapsed and died. Zachary had no prior history of heart problems an no family history.

SEC (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) IS a silent killer and strikes at least 10,000 young people a year, according the American Heart Assocation. Approximately 28 of our children die each day from SCA and often can be prevented.

Simple heart screening can detect a heart problem in the early stages and can help parents make the best decisions for their child’s health.

At Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano, TX they are offering a L4Z screening for youth for 100.00. You no longer have to wonder, worry and wait, the screening will detect any heart issues and if further treatment is needed.

We have enjoyed our time working with Living4Zarchary and feel that as parents, we WILL live for Zachary and have our children screened and encourage you to as well.
