The Via Heart Project, a San Francisco-based nonprofit group, will keep the free cardiac screenings at Cordova High School this Sunday. The event is a collaboration between the project, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District, the San Juan Unified School District and the Twin Rivers Unified School District. Anyone from age twelve to twenty-five can get a free cardiac screening, whether or not they’re enrolled with those districts. Doctors recommend screenings from age twelve or older because hearts aren't fully formed before then and certain abnormalities may not have shown up yet.

When a Wofford football player collapsed at the Tennessee Tech season opener, it was something to which one local mother could closely relate.
A similar incident happened to Anne Frazier’s son, Jonathan, when he was a student and football player at Lambuth University near Memphis in 2006.
