This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.

Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out the give this December 1.

We are asking for donations to help us continue our work in getting the word out about sudden cardiac arrest being the leading cause of death in America. We have a mission to combat the Sudden Cardiac Arrest crisis by eliminating preventable deaths and supporting those who have been affected by it.

Brandon Morales

Brandon MoralesI was already in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in critical condition after having open heart surgery. The doctor informed my family that there was a chance I might not make it through the night, so they remained by my side. My father Jose was sitting in the family room having just returned from getting something to eat, when he heard the announcement "Code Blue: ICU Bed 3."
