Anthony Bates Foundation

"Screening Young Hearts...
Saving Young Lives"


The Anthony Bates Foundation (ABF) believes that no parent should suffer the heartbreak of losing a child to an undiagnosed cardiac malady; we seek to eliminate preventable Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).



Welcome!

HEART month continues here! We need your support at the Anthony Bates Foundation as we carry-on with promoting, educating and raising awareness of HCM; the leading killer of young athletes in this country. The ABF Quest 2020 seeks support to screen 1,000,000 youth in the next 6 years. We need your help!

Give today to save someone's life tomorrow!

Got Heart? GET SCREENED!


WHO IS AFFECTED BY HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY?
HCM crosses ALL age groups, ethnicity and genders. Young athletes represent only 15% of fatalities caused by HCM. It is the added physical
exertion of the heart during exercise and the cool down phase of the heart that will cause a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).


Many people experience no symptoms of heart disease while others may have:

  • * Shortness of Breath
  • * Chest Pain
  • * Heart Palpitations
  • * Light-headedness & Blackouts
