Mission Statement

Our mission is to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and help save lives

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation is a national community benefit organization based in Pittsburgh. We are working to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest--the third leading cause of death in the U.S.--and to help save lives. 

One of our key initiatives is a campaign to motivate laypersons to learn how to save a life by calling 911, giving CPR and using automated external defibrillators (AEDs). Another key program is the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Network, an online community of sudden cardiac arrest survivors and families affected by SCA. Survivor Susan Koeppen, KDKA TV, serves as our national spokesperson.
