Sudden Cardiac Arrest Memorial Page

SCA kills nearly 300,000 Americans each year, and to us, that’s more than a statistic. The lives lost to SCA were unique individuals – parents, children, relatives, friends, coworkers and neighbors. With passion, we work each day to increase bystander intervention, expand public access to defibrillators and further research and development of therapies and treatments so that more individuals survive SCA and less families and communities experience this trauma in the future. And as we establish a national response to SCA, it’s imperative that we not forget those who unnecessarily lost their lives. 

We encourage you to share your memories of your loved one and share this page with your friends and family who may also like to leave a comment.  We hope this will be a valuable tool in your individual healing and recovery. We do ask that comments are kept to 250 words or less.

While we will make every effort to respect the personal nature of your submissions, please know that SCAA observes the right to monitor entries in compliance with ethical standards which could lead to the removal of inappropriate material.

If you would like to add a posting to this page, please submit a typewritten word document along with a photo (JPEG format) of your loved one to info@suddencardiacarrest.org and please list the subject line as Memorial Post.  We will work to get your posting up within 48 business hours.

Timothy Francis White

Our lives were shattered the morning of August 23, 2008, as my husband and my little girl's daddy became a victim of sudden cardiac death.  Tim was in the best shape of his life, exercising, eating right, and an all around healthy and vibrant man. It started off like any other Saturday morning but quickly turned so tragic - words simply cannot describe the pain, anguish and loss we feel.Complete article »

Olivia Hoff

Olivia was the perfect picture of health, so I thought. She was always involved in sports and cheerleading; so of course there could be nothing wrong with my daughter. She was so outgoing, always wanted to ride the fastest roller coaster, never afraid of anything.Complete article »
