Mark Miller

My husband Mark and I were married July 26, 2008. We were recent college grads, in love, and ready to start our life together. Little did we know how challenging the road ahead would be. Soon after our wedding we found out we were pregnant with our daughter, Kaylee. We were ecstatic and looked forward to her arrival. A few months after Kaylee’s birth I noticed that I was feeling extremely… Read More

Rita Casper, Maura Eisenhood

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… Read More

Bob Huebner

I was asked to write a letter about the events of August 24, 2006. Unless you have lived such a day, time is irrelevant, and memory is mixed with what you are later told your actions where, along with what you think you did, and what you wish you had done. From my youth in boy scouting “Be Prepared” has echoed in my ears, I decided many years ago to do everything I could to try and live that… Read More

Cheryl Powell

I would like to nominate my employer Cheryl Powell, as my rescuer for the People Saving People award. Without the quick response of my friend dialing 911, I would not be here today.

Thanks to the phone call that Cheryl made to 911, the Carmel, CA, emergency medical team was able to start the rescue process and I was then transported to… Read More
