Butterflies From Jodie  / Defibrillators

our Defibrillator Donations

Distributions of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) continues to be our main focus. It is believed that had an AED been on hand Jodie’s life may have been saved.

According to WebMD, sudden cardiac death is a sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function. It is the largest cause of natural death in the U.S., causing about 325,000 adult deaths in the each year.
Sudden cardiac arrest can be reversed if treated within the first few minutes. According to the Red Cross, each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces the victim's chance of survival by about 10 percent. About 30% of cardiac fatalities could have been prevented if an AED had been available early enough.
