About Donate Now

The Lion Heart Heroes Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2014 in honor of our son, Marine LCpl David Finlayson, who died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest while serving with the Marines.

We seek to keep military hearts beating by:

  • advocating for EKG screening of military recruits
  • raising awareness of sudden cardiac arrest
  • donating AEDs to military bases
  • challenging the military to require AEDs at fitness events
  • Provide free cardiac screening for JROTC cadets
