Thank you for your help in making the public aware of these heart conditions that may cause a child to die suddenly. As you know, conditions like the Long QT Syndrome are treatable and children can live happy, productive lives if they are diagnosed and treated. We hope that you will be able to make use of these materials to increase awareness in your community.
The importance of your commitment cannot be stressed enough--without your help, we would not be able to extend our reach throughout the country and more children could possibly die. You do save lives!
Remember, when you tell your story to the media (radio, magazine, TV, newspaper, small newsletter, etc.), you are not only letting parents know the warning signs to protect their children, but also physicians, nurses, teachers, etc. who see and treat children every day. Media has a very broad reach and can affect change in many groups. For assistance with contacting media including sample articles and other resources, contact Sylvie or call 800-STOP-SAD.
We love to know what people are doing in their communities. Please let us know how you used these materials:
