Justin Carr wanted World Peace since he was 4 years old. He loved swimming, design and performing arts.
He was vibrant and a seemingly healthy 16-year-old Junior at Harvard-Westlake high school. He died during his usual swim team practice from an undiagnosed heart condition on February 22, 2013. Darrell & Susan Carr want to save other families from dealing with an unimaginable loss that can be prevented.

According to Parent Heart Watch, “Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is not a heart attack – it’s the sudden onset of an abnormal and potentially fatal heart rhythm that causes the heart to beat ineffectively or not at all. The underlying cause of SCA can be a heart condition you’re born with (often inherited) and/or can develop as young hearts grow. SCA can also be triggered from a viral illness, or a blow to the chest from an object or a person.”

  • Screenings are non-invasive (no needles or x-ray
    exposures) and take about 20 minutes to complete.
  • Screenings include a health history review and ECG.
  • If the participant is under 18 years old and brings a
    fully signed/completed screening packet, parents do not
    need to be present at the event.
  • Female technicians screen girls in a separate area
    from boys. Private screening areas available as needed.
  • Participants should dress in t-shirt and sweat pants
    or sports shorts. Girls should wear a sports bra.
  • Instructions will be given if follow-up medical care is
    recommended. Final reports will be sent after the
    cardiologist formal review.

Darrell and Susan on KCAL 9 News

Darrell and I will be on the 12:00 p.m. KCAL Channel 9 News tomorrow to talk about Justin and our upcoming event. The LIVE segment usually hits at 12:44 pm and runs 4-5 minutes.

We are very excited about having our guest speaker Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng. She is the Co-Founder of “The Ceeds of Peace Foundation” & Director, of the Matsunaga Institute for Peace & Conflict Resolution at the University of Hawaii. She will talk about how we can make our immediate world better, build resilience in ourselves, and raise peace builders in our children. It is imperative that we build resilience for ourselves and for our communities.
Her book, “Ladders to the Moon”, will also be available. She wrote this book for her daughter who never met her grandmother. She shared the wisdom she gained from her own mother, Ann Dunham, who was also the mother of President Barack Obama
