Welcome to the Adam J Kausak Memorial Foundation

Adam J. Kausak Memorial Foundation
The foundation was created after our beloved son, Adam, died of a heart condition called Long QT Syndrome. Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a disorder of the heart's electrical activity. It may cause you to develop a sudden, uncontrollable, and dangerous heart rhythm called an arrhythmia. Arrhythmias also can develop for no known reason in people who have LQTS. Not everyone who has LQTS develops dangerous heart rhythms. However, if one does occur, it may be fatal.

Our Mission
We are on a mission to raise public awareness and funding needed to get AED’s (Automated External Defibrillators) in the community. We have worked with local grade schools and Grayslake Community High School to get AED’s placed where they would serve their purpose.

We hope, with your generous support, that we can continue to expand our mission in donating AED’s. We will continue to work with communities to obtain defibrillators, lobby public officials to change sports physicals, and establish EKG testing on newborns. With your help, and the help of others, we can save lives.

* Our appreciation goes out to everyone who supports our cause.

Colleen and Don Kausak are recipients of the 2009 HeartSaver Hero Award
