Max Helfman, New Jersey

by Corinne O. on Thursday, January 2, 2014

Max Helfman got involved with the American Heart Association as a youth advocate at the age of 10, after losing his grandfather to heart disease and his soccer coach to sudden cardiac arrest. Now a high school senior, Max has attended "You’re the Cure on the Hill" lobby day several times where he joined other advocates in urging our representatives in Washington to support funding for NIH research.

Max is also a current co-President of his school’s "Heart Club," which raises money to place AEDs in public locations, as well as educating students and others in the community about CPR and AEDs. He plans to continue advocating for the AHA in college and beyond.
