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.

A high school sophomore saved my life by acting fast and starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), which he had learned in school just weeks prior.
