Honoring the Hearts of SADS in February

During the Heart Month of February, the SADS Foundation is establishing a special fund to give tribute to the past and to bestow continuing funds for the future:

The Dr. G. Michael Vincent Heritage Fund
Honoring the Founding Heart of the SADS Foundation

In the early 1970s, Dr. Vincent and his associates identified and began to study and treat several families with Long QT Syndrome. Dr. Vincent's team actively expanded family pedigrees and prospectively screened family members for LQTS. Many LQTS patients were identified through this proactive approach.

It was during this time that Dr. Vincent shared his thoughts about starting a new foundation to help families affected with LQTS. Through his extensive energy, tireless efforts, and compassionate leadership, the SADS Foundation became an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to find "a better way" to further life-saving endeavors and family support in May of 1992.  

The Dr. G. Michael Vincent Heritage Fund will provide funding to expand the programs of the SADS Foundation as we strive to advance the knowledge, treatment, advocacy, and research of SADS conditions. Please donate now to show Dr. Vincent your appreciation for his critical early work and his establishment of the SADS Foundation to fulfill his wishes "that families with SADS conditions will be kept whole to enjoy the future of children, grandchildren, and the rewards that come from active and healthy lives."

Be part of "a better way" for SADS families all over the world in honor of Dr. G. Michael Vincent, Founder of the SADS Foundation.

* During the month of February, anyone who sends a donation of any size to the SADS Foundation will receive one of our red SADS Bracelets as a special thanks for Heart Month.

* Also during the month of February, anyone who sends a donation of $50 or more to the SADS Foundation will receive a SADS T-Shirt to show our appreciation during Heart Month.
