Bennett’s sudden cardiac arrest story

Studies show that the rate of survival from sudden cardiac arrest decreases by 10% every minute without intervention.1 Thankfully, Bennett’s coaches and emergency responders acted quickly to restart his heart when he collapsed at baseball practice. Watch how, miraculously, first responders restarted Bennett’s heart: three times.

I’m very thankful for all of the people that were there that day when I went down. They saved me. I’m here because of them.

Hana finds her passion
after advanced scoliosis surgery

In 2016 Hana received an advanced scoliosis diagnosis, a condition that occurs more often in females than males.1 After seeing how her healthcare team supported her throughout surgery and during rehabilitation, she realizes that she also wants to help patients live healthier lives.

I am truly grateful for the healthcare professionals who helped me. I will do my best to become a registered dietician, who is trusted by patients.
