Patrick Schoonover passed away from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) November 14, 2014 at the age of 14. Patrick had 2 undetected heart defects that caused his death. The Schoonover family created the Patrick Schoonover Heart Foundation to help identify heart defects in kids 14-24.
The Foundation provides free Play for Patrick Heart screens for kids 14-24. The screens include; Family Health history, Blood Pressure, Height/Weight, EKG, Echocardiogram and physician consultation to review results. The Foundation also teaches hands only CPR and AED awareness and donates AEDs to host schools.
From August 2015 to April 2022, the Patrick Schoonover Heart Foundation conducted 25 Play for Patrick youth heart screens. Screened 4,178 kids, found 255 with elevated blood pressure (w/repeated check), 260 with abnormal electrical or structural heart defects, taught 3,733 kids & adults CPR & AED awareness and donated 15 AEDs to area Schools. #Playwithheart
