About the Breanna Vergara Foundation
Jesus and Claudia Vergara established Breanna Vergara Foundation in memory of their young daughter, Breanna. After losing their daughter to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), the Vergaras founded their foundation with the goal of providing life-saving initiatives in the South Florida community. Breanna Vergara Foundation has partnered with Nicklaus Children's Hospitals to create the #EKG4Bre program, which hosts community events to provide free EKG heart screenings to children aged 5 to 21. They aim to create awareness for the necessity of pediatric heart screenings, which can save thousands of young lives. Breanna Vergara Foundation donates life-saving Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to youth organizations where children participate in play and sports. They actively educate the public on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and AED techniques, which can allow non-medical personnel to save lives. By providing the South Florida community with theses tools and knowledge, Breanna Vergara Foundation intends to prevent the loss of children's lives to SCA and other heart-related conditions.
