Each year in the United States, an estimated 4,000 young people die suddenly and unexpectedly due to cardiac arrhythmias. Most of these deaths are preventable.

Denver, CO, February 11, 2010 --( Learn the warning signs of SADS conditions and you might just save a young person’s life. SADS conditions include Long QT Syndrome (LQTS), Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), Arrhymogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD), and others.

The warning signs are:

· Family history of unexpected, unexplained sudden death in a young person
· Fainting (syncope) or seizure during exercise, excitement or startle
· Consistent or unusual chest pain and/or shortness of breath during exercise

"No one knew that this fainting episode would lead to such tragedy. If doctors say the cause of fainting isn’t a seizure then go the next level and find out what it is." – Cheryl Badger (mother) The Badgers are available for interviews.
