CPR Saves 13-year old Boy

Last September, JJ Dunn woke up in the middle of the night after hearing a suspicious sound. He found his stepson, Jake, then 13 years-old, on the floor next to his bed. Dunn had only ever seen CPR on television; he had never had any kind of formal training. But his adrenaline kicked in and he began compressions as he called for his wife to dial 911.

Jake, now 14-years old and about to begin his freshman year of high school, is one of many survivors of cardiac arrest. Sadly, this wasn’t his first medical emergency. When he was six, he suffered a stroke during a heart procedure. Doctors determined that the cause of this episode was because one side of his heart had become bigger, which was forcing it to work harder. Yet, as daunting as all of this sounds to a 14-year old, Jake seems to have a very mature and optimistic view of his condition and the future. While some kids aspire to be pro-athletes or action stars, Jake hopes to create and launch his own clothing line, aptly named “LTR: Long Term Recovery”, and donate profits to charity.

My husband and I hired Precious Hearts to come teach us CPR in our home and we had a WONDERFUL experience! Grace is a fantastic teacher and we learned so much. She had all the proper equipment for us to get lots of practice, she gave lots of real-world examples, and overall she made the process really fun and positive. Our nanny came for the 2nd half of the class and she reviewed the CPR and choking rescue procedures with her as well. I sleep better at night knowing that we received great training and I would HIGHLY recommend Precious Hearts for anyone considering CPR training. Thank you Precious Hearts Team!
