Chases Story

Chase was a young boy full of a passion for life and sports who collapsed at school from cardiac arrest on February 6th, 2006 and never recovered. Fully aware of his heart condition, Chase had a dream for all children and people alike to be protected wherever they may be – gym, arena, or court – from their illnesses. After Chase’s devastating death, several new Ontario Government Acts were issued.

The Chase McEachern Act

The Chase McEachern Act came to be by the Ontario government in 2006, after the devastating death of Chase McEachern. This Act protects people from liability if they assisted someone, using a defibrillator, at an emergency (under certain conditions) or (again under certain conditions) if they made defibrillators available in good faith. This Act was the first of many incredible differences Chase would make in the lives of those around him.

Rocco Rossi of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario said of this measure, “Today’s action is a fitting tribute to Chase’s vision, which will aid in our campaign with the family to introduce 1,000 defibrillators across the province and serve as a catalyst to make these devices as common as fire extinguishers, giving Ontarians the best possible chance of surviving cardiac arrest.”


Heart conditions impact millions of people everyday including sports icons we look up to as heroes. As much as we would like to think that our favourite athletes are indestructible, a heart condition can have a severe impact on a professional athletes career &  life.
