DID YOU KNOW?

1 in 50 high schools has a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) incident on school grounds every year.

Cameron’s Cause Foundation was established in memory of Cameron Kelly Batson, an 18-year old soccer player, who died much to young due to an undetected heart condition. Our goals are to build awareness around protecting young hearts and to provide Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to area school systems, sports venues and event facilities to lower the chances of death.

Responding quickly to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) patients with a defibrillator can make the difference between life and death. When defibrillation is administered within the first few minutes of a SCA victim’s collapse, the chances of survival increase tremendously.

The single greatest factor affecting survival is the time from cardiac arrest to defibrillation (shock).

AEDS BEING PRESENT SAVE LIVES

Cameron died on a high school soccer field in October 2010. As a a non-profit organization, we focus on raising money to buy automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for schools across the nation, and even the world.

“There wasn’t an AED present on the field when Cameron went down and that was the hardest news to get – possibly if an AED was present, he could still be been here today,” – Laura Batson, Cameron’s mother.

Cameron died from undiagnosed heart disease — a form of cardiomyopathy that caused a catastrophic event called sudden cardiac death.
