Matt’s sudden cardiac arrest story

Studies show the rate of survival from sudden cardiac arrest decreases by 10% for every minute without intervention.1 Miraculously, after 80 minutes of continuous CPR with the LUCAS chest compression system and critical care from emergency caregivers, Matt regained his pulse and started breathing.

From the nurses in the field that found me to the nurses and doctors at the hospital, I had the best care and best people (taking care of me). I’m thankful for that.

Mother and son
take on Goldenhar syndrome

A 2020 study estimates that 4% of the population, or 300 million people, are living with a rare disease worldwide.2 Baby Philip is one of them, living with a congenital condition called Goldenhar syndrome. Meet his mother and advocate, Wilhelmine, and Dr. Kevin Lung whose work set Philip on a path to thrive.

He (Philip) is so much happier. He’s thriving. He’s eating two teaspoons a day, which is so good and a lot of progress. We’re hoping that his swallowing keeps getting better and his throat keeps improving so he can eat more and more by mouth. That’s our goal!
