Garry’s sudden cardiac arrest story

Garry was performing a hymn song during church when he collapsed on stage from a sudden cardiac arrest. Thankfully, a few key audience members immediately sprang to action. Watch how the audience members and Emergency Medical Services saved his life.

I can’t thank them enough. All of them; Life Ambulance, Bronson Hospital and Oshtemo Fire Department.

Christina’s bunionectomy story

About 30% of women experience a painful bump on the outside of their big toe, known as a bunion.1 Due to their location, bunions can often reduce the flexibility of the toe and cause continuous pain. Watch Christina as she shares how PROstep provided her with less pain2, smaller scars2,3 and a quicker recovery3,4 so she could get back to her nursing career and bodybuilding.

Before PROstep I feared that I would have to give up my nursing career and passion for bodybuilding. PROstep gave me my life back!
