I was in the gym with a friend at around 6:15AM on September 19th when I was struck down with an SCA. During the incident I bit off a piece of my tongue and was bleeding from the mouth. None of the people who stepped forward to help me knew anything about me, other than they had perhaps seen me there before. Not a single one of my rescuers ,Rita, Maura or Richard (whom I've not had contact with per his wishes), hesitated for a second when I was in critical need of their assistance.

I realize you will receive dozens of nominees. To both myself and my family the nominees I've put forward will always hold a special place in our hearts and minds. Their true selflessness deserves to be recognized. Read Dan’s story here and as reported in the press here
