Zac Mago Foundation raises awareness of sudden cardiac arrest in teens

By  | 

(WNDU) - The Zac Mago Foundation has been established in memory of its 17-year-old namesake who died in July of 2018 when he took an afternoon nap and tragically didn't wake up.

Zac was an honor student at John Glenn High School and a rising star on the school's basketball team.

He died from cardiopulmonary arrest due to an enlarged heart, and the foundation wants to provide information and preventive heart screenings to stop sudden cardiac arrest in teens.

The Zac Mago Foundation hosted its first youth heart screening at LaVille High School on May 1, and it is hosting another one at John Glenn from May 20-22.
