Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It’s a condition that occurs out of nowhere, without warning and is the No. 1 cause of death in student athletes. On May 17, 2015, after a pick up basketball game with friends, Cameron Juniel collapsed and died on the basketball court. The cause of death was sudden cardiac arrest. At only twenty years old, Cameron’s death was a shock to his friends and family. Sudden Cardiac Arrest strikes mostly in athletes that play basketball or football, are male and African American. Doctors discovered that Cameron’s heart condition was genetic and an Electrocardiogram (EKG) could have have given doctors life saving information before his death.

An EKG is quick, painless, and non-invasive. On Sunday, Jan. 28 from 11:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., the Cameron Juniel Project with the help of Who we Play For and The Cody Stenve’s Foundation will be offering free EKG’s for anyone age 11 to 25 at The Kingdom Builder’s Center – 6011 West Orem Drive Houston, TX 77085. Five minutes is all it takes to save a life. It could be yours or one of your family members.
