John Mack

John, age 17, collapsed in cardiac arrest after a stick check to his chest during a club lacrosse game on November 30, 2006.  It took 19 minutes to get an AED to the field to restart John’s heart. John suffered irreparable brain damage and was removed from life support three days later and became an organ donor. Following John’s death, a benefit was held by family and friends.  The money raised was used to purchase 21 AEDs; 21 was the number John wore on his lacrosse jersey.
