Helping others has always been who I am. My Father recognized this in me at the young age of just 4 years old. It has always been in me to help others, so it only makes sense to move in that direction and so I do.

First as a Nurses Aide and then a Nurse. I have enjoyed many years in the Medical Profession. My first position as a nurse was working for two Doctors { a married couple} at their office Dr S and Dr N. Not their real names, but that’s what everyone called them…other Physicians, Nurses and Patients alike. I believe only they themselves could pronounce their own name.

Mr X had just stepped away to retrieve something from another room. When suddenly Mrs. X stopped breathing and fell forward. That’s right talking one moment and heart stops the next. Caroline and I acted quickly. We had been trained in life saving CPR and knew just what to do. Assessing for unresponsiveness as we simultaneously called to Mr X to call 911.

Caroline in a dress and full makeup {including bright red lipstick}. We started where we were… Caroline gave two quick breath’s {at that time, we were taught the ABC sequence. Airway-Breathing-Compression’s. Now it is the CAB sequence, Compression’s-Airway-Breathing} while I found my landmark and started chest compression’s. It went on for at least 15 minutes and as the Emergency Medical Response Team arrived, Mrs. X began breathing on her own and opened her eyes.

Mr and Mrs. X we’re grateful to be given a second chance to continue their journey on together while leaving an amazing legacy of a happy life-long marriage. We were very proud at the way Mr. X stayed calm and Dialed 911

I have lost several loved ones to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, with no one near them that knew what to do. A call was placed for emergency personal but unfortunately, it was not enough.
