Luke Brodell Community AED Fund
The Luke Brodell AED Fund was established to place life-saving AEDs in needed places throughout our community. This fund is named in honor of Luke Brodell who suffered cardiac arrest while at a sports practice and was saved by his coach’s quick response with an AED.
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
Thanks to the portability of these units, AEDs can now be found in churches, auditoriums, and gyms to help provide immediate help when a cardiac event is taking place. Sadly though, not all schools and sports complexes in our area have these devices. Many places where our young athletes are practicing or playing do not have quick access to an AED which could potentially save a life. Donate today to make life-saving AED’s available to our community.
