The Forest Glade "In A HeartBeat" fund appeal.
You will have read stories about extremely fit, young athletes collapsing without warning as a result of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The most famous recent case is Fabrice Muamba who survived due to the fantastic emergency response administering CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED). Sadly, most people who suffer SCA will die without this.
At Forest Glade we obviously hope never to have to deal with this situation. However, if we do have to we intend to give the unfortunate victim the best chance to survive. This means buying at least one AED to be permanently available at the club.
SCA can happen at any age, including the young. It occurs in people who often appear healthy and have no known heart disease or other risk factors for SCA. It happens to children. It could happen to your child or grandchild.
With the combined use of chest compressions and prompt use of a defibrillator together with a rapid ambulance response, survival rates increase dramatically up to an impressive 50-60%. Every second counts.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. The person loses consciousness and collapses. SCA usually causes death if it is not treated within minutes. The most effective treatment for this is chest compressions (CPR) combined with the administration of a defibrillator (AED).

This fund raiser has my name on it just because I happened to be the person who set the page up and the set up needed a person's name. This is the club's fund raising appeal supported by the Executive Committee and all monies raised by this appeal goes directly to the club's bank account.
