Project One Cause, is a nonprofit organization that provides financial aid and educational
support for families with children affected by non-fatal drowning and hypoxic brain injuries.
Nonfatal drowning can result in long-term health challenges, costly hospital stays and expensive long-term therapies.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Children ages 1-4 have the highest drowning rates.
For every child who dies from drowning, another eight receive
emergency hospitalization care for nonfatal drowning.
More than 40% of drownings treated in emergency departments require hospitalization or transfer for further care.
Drowning injuries can cause serious outcomes, including long-term disability.
