Brad Wilby lived his life demonstrating passion for sport and compassion for others. An athlete his entire life, he died suddenly at age 25 from an undiagnosed and little-understood condition to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. The condition, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, is commonly known as ARVC.
The mission of this foundation is to promote the development of character and leadership among the youth of our local communities, to continue providing scholarships to graduating seniors at Haddonfield Memorial High School, and to promote awareness of ARVC and other heart conditions. In addition, funds from the foundation will be used to purchase defibrillators for local facilities.
Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD) is a rare form of cardiomyopathy in which the heart muscle of the right ventricle (RV) is replaced by fat and/or fibrous tissue. The right ventricle is dilated and contracts poorly. As a result, the ability of the heart to pump blood is usually weakened.
