1,000 Reasons Why You Should Support the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Today, #GivingTuesday

Sudden cardiac arrest strikes about 1,000 people outside hospitals each day in the U.S. Sadly, it is the nation’s third leading cause of death. Survival rates are generally dismal, but they improve dramatically when bystanders take action by calling 911, giving CPR and using AEDs. You can help promote awareness, understanding and action by supporting the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation today, #GivingTuesday.

Dear Friends,

Brothers, Age 7 and 10, Perform CPR to Save Grandmother in Cardiac Arrest

It was a Saturday night and seven-year-old Grayson Wu said that he knew something was wrong with his grandma when he asked for a snack and she didn't answer.

"So I looked over and she was, like..." he said.

"Unconscious, on the couch," interjects 10-year-old Kian Wu, rolling his head back and opening his mouth wide to illustrate.

"She looked really dead," adds Grayson. "Spit was going back into her mouth. She was grunting a little."
