Three-sport star Elizabeth Cline was swimming a few laps when her heart started racing and her legs went numb. It was all she could do to tap a fellow swimmer before she passed out. After testing at Akron Children's Hospital, it was determined she had long QT syndrome, a genetic condition that can cause the heart to suddenly stop beating. Elizabeth and her family share the story of how this potentially-deadly condition has changed all of their lives.
