During this season of giving, why not take just 2 minutes to learn how you can prepare yourself for the possibility of giving the gift of life? Sounds amazing, right? It doesn’t cost a thing and, chances are, the life you may save could be someone very close to you.
Thanks to the great folks at Anthem Foundation for making this post about Hands-Only CPR possible. As always, my comments, opinions and desire to share potentially life saving information with my community are my own.

Over a third of a million cardiac arrests happen outside of hospitals each year in the United States. Most happen in homes and other residential areas, and, sadly, most cardiac arrest victims don’t survive.
CPR, especially when performed immediately, can double, even triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival. Yet only half of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from bystanders.
