An online community supporting families and individuals after sudden cardiac death in the young

This website is aimed at family and friends of someone who has passed away suddenly due to sudden cardiac death, particularly when the cause of the sudden cardiac death is thought to be due to a genetic heart disease. If this is not your situation, some of the information may still be of use to you and we welcome you to explore.

Watch this video for an overview of sudden cardiac death

in a young person and the journey some families experience. 


This website was produced by researchers at the Clinical Genomics Laboratory,

Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

We are a multidisciplinary team working with the Genetic Heart Disease Clinic, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia. We aim to help families affected by genetic heart disease and have a special focus in the care of families after the sudden cardiac death of a young person.
