Go Big Or Go Home!

 

 

On May 6, 2012, Cody Stephens was a few weeks from graduating from Crosby High School, and looking forward to showing his pig, steer and lamb at the Crosby Fair and Rodeo in June. He was also excited to be headed to Tarleton State University on a football scholarship, and working to stay in good physical condition to be prepared for college football practices.

At 6’9″ and weighing 289 lbs, he seemed to be in perfect health, and had no idea that he had a fatal heart problem. On that Sunday afternoon, Cody came in, kicked back in his dad’s recliner, clicked the TV on, said he was tired and dozed off for a nap. He never woke up but died in his sleep, from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. This was something that we had never heard of and had no idea that young, seemingly healthy children were at risk of, with relatively few or no warning signs.

The purpose of Go Big or Go Home - Cody Stephens Foundation is to provide assistance to the students of Texas School districts to implement a ECG screening program, to help implement and facilitate improved physicals to middle and high school student athletes, to include education and raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) among young seemingly healthy students. The foundation is endorsing the availability of low cost ECGs as a part of sports pre-participation physicals for all athletes and available to all students if requested. The foundation also supports Crosby High School with academic scholarships for graduates to attend a college or university.
