SUDC Foundation promotes awareness, advocates for research and supports those affected by SUDC. Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) is a category of death in children between the ages of 1 and 18 that remains unexplained after a thorough investigation, including an autopsy. Most often, a seemingly healthy child goes to sleep and never wakes up. A medical examiner or coroner could rule a child’s death SUDC when s/he completes a thorough evaluation and finds no other cause of death. Due to variations in investigations and the way deaths are certified- we do not know exactly how often SUDC occurs. This is why the advocacy work the SUDC Foundation does, and the research it funds, are so important. Consistency in recording unexplained deaths improves our understanding of the magnitude of SUDC and allows for the appropriate allocation of resources. Ways to help the SUDC Foundation: online donation, corporate giving, or Amazon Smile. Host an Afternoon Tea Fundraiser – contact Rebecca Cameron firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Survival depends on people nearby calling 911, starting CPR¹, and using an AED² (if available) as soon as possible. CALL-PUSH-SHOCK. SCA is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
