My Life Has Changed a Lot

Raymond White, Kearney, NE – 45 at time of event (2009)

[Raymond has no recollection of his SCA event and is reliant upon his wife for the following details]

On November 6th, 2009 my husband suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.

We got up as usual, had coffee, and planned to go out to eat breakfast. We had gone upstairs to get dressed when I heard him breathing deeply and moaning.

I found him laying on the bed sweating profusely, short of breath and severe chest discomfort radiating down his right arm. I immediately got him downstairs and had my son sit with him while I finished getting dressed. I knew calling EMS would take longer than me driving him into town.

AED Access for All

Mary Tappe, West Des Moines, IA – 43 at time of event (2004)

Mary Tappe

On Monday, May 17, 2004 I was running late to a meeting at work. As I was sitting down, my friend Rick made a smart-alec comment about my being late, I gripped my pen, and BAM, my head hit the desk. My co-workers waited for me to sit up with a retort, but I didn’t. I was not breathing. I had no pulse.

Mission & Vision
