Remy Rebeiz, the 20-year-old founder of the Beirut Football Club and dedicated member of the American University of Beirut varsity soccer team, was the picture of health when his heart suddenly stopped on March 27, 2013 .With the launch of the Remy Rebeiz Young Heart Foundation earlier this month, Remy's family and friends hope to prevent tragedies of a similar nature. The Foundation's ultimate goal is to make automated external defibrillators compulsory in all public and private institutions, and to provide training on how to use them to as many people as possible, starting with students. Remy's family and doctors say he could have been saved had an AED been present. According to John, AUB has already saved two students who went into cardiac arrest at the gym, including a young man named Hussein, a friend of Remy's sister, who also attended Remy's funeral.Above all, John and Sylvia Rebeiz want to spread the message that even young, active people who appear perfectly healthy can suffer from unseen conditions that can claim their lives in a moment.
