Here's an update from the SADS Foundation about our exciting new awareness campaign, Keeping Hearts Beating.  Please take a minute to catch up and see what's new with SADS awareness.
Awareness Focus: Libraries!
Library Clip Art

Utah has officially "blasted" ALL the public libraries with SADS posters!  What about your state?

We want all the libraries to have SADS posters!  It's a simple and quite effective way to spread the word--what are you waiting for?

Click here to see a list of public libraries in your city, then submit a materials request.  Questions?  E-mail Adrienne.

Check out the new awareness spotlight page to highlight volunteers and their successes.  Send in a picture of you hanging your posters, showing off your wrist-bands or any awareness event and we'll put it up!
Oscar Buzz: Molly SmithOscar
Molly Smith, sister of famous nature photographer, Windland Smith Rice who passed away from LQTS type 2 in 2005,  is dedicated to raising  SADS  awareness.  Molly Smith is a well-known movie producer.  After  the  death of her sister, she began working on the film "P.S. I Love You".  The film's hopeful message about finding laughter through tears and preservation is a perfect memorial tribute to Windland and thus, Molly dedicated the film to her. Many people have seen this dedication and contacted us.  Have you seen it?
Now she's at it again with her Oscar nominated movie "The Blind Side" starring  Sandra Bullock. The film is nominated for not only best picture but also best actress!  Molly Smith and her family are great advocates for SADS and are continuously dedicated to raising awareness. We wish Molly and her colleagues at "The Blind Side" the best of luck on Oscar Night this March 7th!
SADS Awareness at the 2010 Winter Olympics!
Heartoberfest at Olympics The Tolosky family has been a long time supporter of the SADS foundation with their annual Christie's Heartoberfest SADS benefit in loving memory of their daughter and sister, Christie, who died of previously undetected Long QT in June of 2005. 

Now the Tolosky family is raising awareness at the 2010 Winter Olympics!  They arranged to put a Christie's Heartoberfest banner on the US Bobsled team's bobsled.  It is truly amazing to think that the millions of Olympic attendees, athletes, and viewers tuned in will see the banner!  Visit our website to see more photos from the Olympics.
