Sudden Cardiac Arrest IS Preventable


The Cody Stephens Foundation provides heart screening with ECGs for all Texas school districts for students ages 12-24. ECGs are interpreted via telemedicine by licensed cardiologists and results returned to the school within three business days. ECGs are quick, easy and painless – about five minutes per person. We have full funding options available to all Texas schools the first year of screening, thanks to our generous donors. Otherwise the cost is just $20 per person.


More than 100,000 students have been screened by the Cody Stephens Foundation.


More than 90 young athletes have been diagnosed with heart issues that would have cut short their lives.



For the last three Texas legislative sessions, we supported bills that would bring heart screening to every school in Texas. In the 2019 legislature, House Bill 76 - Cody's Law would put the decision in parents' hands, with the ability to opt out for any reason.


Based on testimony from Scott and Melody Stephens and students whose lives were saved by heart screening, the UIL adopted the SCA Awareness form to help educate families about this silent killer.


Screenings Work

When Huffman ISD started their heart screening program in 2011, football player Chris Aguilar’s parents signed him up. The ECG showed a serious abnormality and within weeks Chris went through a 9-hour surgery to correct a heart issue no one knew he had. The next year he was back playing football and volunteering for the local fire department.
