It started with our Hands on Hearts program…
Happily celebrating their anniversary with an afternoon of golf, Kay and Rob had no idea they were about to become a news story. Suddenly and completely without warning, Kay collapsed on the green. She was not breathing, had no pulse, and was completely unresponsive. Isolated and without a cell phone, her husband suddenly remembered something amazing.
He had seen a brief television story about compression-only CPR. The instructions were simple enough that just that brief glimpse taught him what he needed to save his wife’s life. He kept precious blood circulating to her brain until medical professionals arrived. Today, Kay is fully recovered. They celebrated their next anniversary on the same golf course—glad to count themselves as two of the thousands of people who learned about compression-only CPR through the “Hands on Hearts” program offered by St. Mary’s Hospital.
