Simon's Heart was started for a boy named Simon who died before his time. Every chapter that we've written contains the names of families and children who have been impacted by heart conditions and/or sudden cardiac arrest.


A future in which parents and communities don’t lose children to detectable and treatable heart conditions.


To create and advance innovative and evidence-based programs, policies, and research that prevent sudden cardiac arrest and death in children, teens, and young adults.


Curiosity . . . about what causes, and what can prevent, sudden cardiac arrest and death in youth

Integrity . . . in the evidence and data that drive our programs and policies

Empathy . . . for families, educators, coaches, pediatricians and communities impacted by sudden cardiac arrest

Innovation . . . in programs that engage families and advance the science.

Collaboration . . . with medical professionals, industry leaders, and policymakers.
