THE STORY:

American Heart Association wrote -

PLUS:  Donate $28 by 5pm EST June 21st and be entered to win an iPad2 and "Push Hard & Fast" t-shirt signed by Ken Jeong!

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, young or old, at any time. It is a leading cause of death in the U.S., and it happens when the heart abruptly stops.

When an adult collapses, odds are that it’s from sudden cardiac arrest. Odds are also high that if bystanders respond at all, the only thing they will do is call 9-1-1. Medical attention is critical, but bystanders must act first — and fast — because every minute counts.

Even scarier? About 80 percent of victims collapse at home – many times while the victim’s loved ones stand by helplessly because they don’t know what to do.

The good news is that chance of survival more than doubles with immediate and effective CPR. And the American Heart Association is making it easier for people to remember the steps to take in a sudden cardiac emergency with Hands-Only CPR.   

Hands-Only CPR – or CPR without using breaths – involves two simple steps to help an adult cardiac arrest victim:

1)    Call 9-1-1

2)    Push hard and fast in the center of the chest until an AED arrives and is ready for use or healthcare providers take over

Remember the classic Bee Gees disco hit "Stayin' Alive?" It’s the perfect beat for remembering the right rate of chest compressions during Hands-Only CPR. Disco may be dead, but it’s helping keep people alive.

We’ve enlisted the help of actor and real-life doctor Ken Jeong to help spread this lifesaving message. Check out his hilarious take on “Stayin’ Alive” clad in a white suit like the one worn by John Travolta in the classic film “Saturday Night Fever.” View the video located on the left of this page.  Hopefully after watching the video, you’ll be inspired to learn more and get involved in this cause.  

Please click DONATE now and you will support the American Heart Association’s lifesaving research and education programs, like this one for Hands-Only CPR.

Also, click JOIN THE TEAM. Once you join the team, you'll become a team member for this fundraiser and can share your own page with your friends and family asking them to support this cause.

We want all Americans to learn – and use – Hands-Only CPR so we can save more lives.

Rules - Win an iPad 2 & a "Push Hard & Fast" T-Shirt Signed by Ken Jeong

Rules - Win 2 Tickets to the ELLEN Show in Los Angeles (9th Season/Dates to be determined, no travel/transportation provided)
