When teen athletes collapse
It happens. Sometimes teen athletes collapse after showing no apparent warning signs.
It happened to Sarah (Steel) Anderson. She went into cardiac arrest at 12 years old after coming home from a cheerleading camp.
While she had never shown signs of heart problems, what happened to her uncovered hypertrophic cardiomyopathy that runs in her family.
Now a mother of two, one son and her father are all part of a treatment program at the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s.
