As promised, here is our first card regarding how YOU can become an everyday life-saver! First, everything we talk about here can be found in one of two (simple) locations: The American Heart Association www.heart.org and The American Red Cross www.redcross.org.
Although some techniques and information may differ slightly - the differences are negligible and the end goal is the same...To provide you with current and viable tools which will allow you to save yourselves, a loved one, or stranger. Let's get started (with enthusiasm)!!
We'll start with some background, very important information which illustrates WHY this is such a heavy topic.
I will try to streamline this as best I can so that you needn't be reading for days on end. The basic info regarding heart disease will give you an idea of why this kind of empowering knowledge is so necessary. No, wait...don't fall asleep yet - there's STILL more!
+ Approximately 600,000 people per year in the U.S. die from heart disease/coronary related incidents - That’s one in four deaths. Every year, approx. 715,000 Americans experience a heart attack. Heart Disease is also among the TOP THREE killers of people worldwide.
