> Who We Are
How We Came About:

Trying to cope with Zac's death, a group of mothers began researching the incidents of SCA in young student athletes. We were shocked to learn that nationwide 10,000 young people die each year from SCA (according to the American Heart Association). That is 28 a day! Not only is that figure staggering, we feel it is absolutely unacceptable when it can be prevented in many cases.

The research also revealed that SCA is a SILENT KILLER striking the seemingly healthy and fit without symptoms or warning. When we learned that simple cardiac testing can detect the potential for SCA with 99% accuracy but is not the current standard of care for routine or sport physical examinations, we were called to action. A sad but true fact is that most insurance carriers will not cover cardiac testing unless there are symptoms. But again, in most cases there are no symptoms.

Since its inception in June 2009, the core group of mothers has grown to include fathers, students, friends, businesses, schools, medical institutions and other organizations. We know that in our hearts with more education awareness and screening, fewer cases of SCA will occur. Fewer precious lives will be lost.

THE HEART HOSPITAL Baylor Plano understands the importance of cardiac testing in the prevention of SCA. The physicians and executive at Baylor know that detection and correction of heart anomalies early in life can not only help prevent SCA in youth, but can improve the overall vascular health as adults.

THE HEART HOSPITAL has introduced a low-cost screening program for youth 12 to 22 years old. Please click on this link to find more information about the Living for Zachary screening program offered by THE HEART HOSPITAL Baylor Plano.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28



Living for Zachary is a non-profit organization [(501 (c) (3) 80-0410066] with a mission dedicated to saving young lives from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). The organization was founded in honor of Zachary Schrah, who was only 16 years old when he collapsed during a high school football practice in Plano on April 2, 2009. After Zachary’s death, the Living for Zachary Organization was established to raise awareness of undiagnosed heart issues in teens.
