The Kopytko Family

Our son Mitchell, was born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, he is now 10. 2 years ago my husband was also diagnosed with the disease. Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is often the cause of sudden cardiac death.

The school that Mitchell attends is not equipped with an AED. As a parent I spend much of my day worrying that if he were to have a cardiac incident it would be too late by the time it was recognized, and the paramedics were called. In an effort to let him have a normal childhood, we often find ourselves in locations that are not equipped with AED’s, school field trips and camp sleepovers.

We have often thought about the benefits of being able to have life saving equipment with Mitchell at all times, and would be forever thankful to have won that piece of mind.
