NJ Resident Is Thankful For CPR

I have so much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my family, my friends and most importantly, the fact that I’m alive today to enjoy them. In 2008, at the age of 49, I collapsed on the side of the road suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. A high school sophomore saved my life by acting fast and starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), which he had learned in school just weeks prior.
