THE STORY:

Sammy Miller, teacher of the year at Woodland High School, was teaching some students in his classroom on October 15, 2014 when he had a massive heart attack. Sammy's heart stopped as did his breathing. Thanks to the quick actions of the students in calling 911 and his fellow teachers in giving him CPR and using a portable defibrillator, Sammy survived the initial event. After being life-flighted to Emory University Hospital, Sammy fought for his life in the ICU for 3 weeks. The doctors at Emory did their very best to save Sammy but cautioned the family that the odds of surviving a “widow-maker” heart attack were very low. After a week in ICU, a CT scan revealed that Sammy had brain damage and bleeding on the brain. This ruled him out for having a heart transplant or other potentially life-saving surgeries. This also meant that the doctors had to take him off the heart bypass machine that was helping keep him alive. As the hours turned in to days, Sammy’s heart continued to beat and even got stronger. The recovery was so surprising that nurses began calling him “miracle man.”

 

Today, Sammy’s heart is continuing to beat on its own and the arduous road of rehabilitation at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta has now begun. He is awake, alert and recovering. God willing, Sammy Miller will walk out of the hospital in Atlanta with his wife and young son. No matter what happens, his family will face the harsh reality of unexpected hospital bills.
