The Oliver King Foundation

Image

KEIOC are proud to support the Oliver King Foundation and we would urge all Evertonians to sign their e-petition.

Oliver attended King David Primary school and started at King David High School in September 2010. He was a keen sportsman who excelled in football, swimming, athletics and many other sports. Oliver passed away suddenly in March 2011, aged 12, from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS).

This condition usually affects people between the ages of 12 and 35. The Government recognises that 12 young people each week die from SADS but it is believed that the true figure is around 16-19 people each week and could be higher as the condition is often misdiagnosed. The recent events involving Muamba have only served to highlight the importance of bringing this condition into the public eye.

Muamba’s situation has also highlighted the importance of defibrillators. Without a defibrillator on the pitch side, Muamba may not have been so lucky. The Foundation believes that all athletes, not just professionals, should have access to defibrillators when training and competing in their chosen sports.

With these issues in mind, we have set up an e-petition calling on the Government to help the Foundation achieve it’s 3 main aims:

1. To help raise awareness of the condition as it can be controlled and monitored if detected. Raising awareness is of vital importance as young people with the condition do not usually show symptoms.

2. To places defibrillators in all public buildings, including schools and sports centres, and to provide staff with the relevant training.

3. To set up a screening programme, which would allow all young people between 12 and 35 to have their hearts checked through a simple ECG.

In order for this issue to be carried forward to the House of Commons we are required to collect 100,000 signatures. Oliver loved Everton. We are asking you as fellow Evertonians to help us save lives so that something positive can come out of the loss of such a beautiful young man. Please sign the e-petition:
