- About Us
Connected by Hearts (CBH) provides education, support and networking to young survivors of sudden cardiac arrest and those who have survived or are living with heart related illnesses. It was founded in 2011 by a group of young people who wanted to share their experiences with each other.
We all come to CBH with different stories and diseases. Some of us have experienced SCA, while others were diagnosed with heart issues prior to having an event. Some of us still don’t have a specific diagnosis. Several of us are living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, and others are not.
Either way, we all share some commonalities. Our lives can be challenging but we know we can gather strength and compassion from each other.
We welcome you to connect with CBH, and to also check out what’s happening locally in San Diego.
If you would like to connect locally with youth who have been found at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, or who have survived a cardiac arrest event, and their parents, the Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation invites you to participate in free gatherings throughout the year, as well as meet others who have taken their own heart journey.
