KAP for the Heart was founded in memory of Kieran Popp, who passed away from Sudden Cardiac Arrest at the young age of 23. KAP For the Heart is dedicated to bringing awareness about the importance of heart health in youth and young adults.
We promote a proactive approach to heart conditions to prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth. The long term goal of the foundation is to provide assistance to cardiac patients who are in need of support for daily tasks and/or financial assistance for medications and proper treatment.
In addition to helping cardiac patients, KAP for the Heart will grant AEDs to organizations, schools, and other nonprofit entities who are in the need of an AED. Finally, KAP for the Heart will advocate for EKG and Echocardiogram’s for middle and high school students and patient needs through legislation and volunteer programs.
