Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an inherited rhythm problem predisposing approximately 1 in 2000 individuals to serious and life-threatening heart rhythms that can result in cardiac arrest. The children of mothers or fathers with LQTS have a 50% chance of having LQTS, and even before they are born, babies with LQTS can have the life threatening rhythm problems.

To our dear Friends at Parent Heart Watch--
The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association offers our heartiest congratulations on your Tenth Anniversary. The losses your leaders and members have faced as a result of SCA are the most profound that can be suffered. As a result you have become extremely effective communicators, sympathizers and advocates concerning SCA issues. It has been our great pleasure to have worked side by side with you for such a great cause. We are pleased to continue to do so. Keep up your great work and we will continue to admire your achievements and strive to eradicate unnecessary deaths from SCA.
