Kaysen Parker was a little boy who had just celebrated his second birthday. Six days after his birthday, Kaysen's heart stopped beating during his sleep. Kaysen's grandfather and mother were able to start CPR until paramedics arrived and transported him to GRU Children's Medical Center. The doctors at GRU were able to perform several tests to determine that Kaysen had a rare heart arrhythmia, Brugada Syndrome. On October 30, 2013, just nine days after Kaysen's second birthday, Kaysen was pronounced legally brain dead. Kaysen's parents made the hard decision to donate his viable organs to other people in the US who were waiting for them. On October 31, 2013, Kaysen was escorted to the Operating Room wearing his Superman Halloween costume that he had been so excited to wear. The Kaysen Parker Memorial Foundation was created to carry on Kaysen's hero legacy. The goal of the foundation is to create awareness of Brugada Syndrome, the adult/adolescent form of SIDs, raise money for Brugada Syndrome Research and Sudden Arrhythmia Death Prevention, and to provide support for families affected by Brugada Syndrome. Each year The Kaysen Parker Memorial Foundation hosts a Golf Tournament to raise money for Brugada Syndrome Research, Awareness, and Sudden Arrhythmia Death Prevention. This year's tournament is on April 20 at the River Golf Club in North Augusta. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Non-Profit Corporation so any registration fees, donations, and sponsorships are tax deductible. Please help me spread the word, I really want this year to be a great success!
