Ilana Adlee

As a young person in North Carolina, I see the detrimental effects of having little to no healthcare because of cost. My own mother is a heart disease survivor and advocate, who survived because of research, funding, and most importantly, her parent’s adequate health insurance coverage.

Lyndsey Albright Saves her Boyfriend’s Life with Telephone CPR

On Sept. 3, 2016, after a night of visiting friends, Mike Miller and his girlfriend of 11 years returned to the home they had moved into four days earlier. Just after 11 p.m., the two sat down on their couch, and that’s when Miller began acting strange. First, he told his girlfriend, Lyndsey Albright, that he felt tired. Then he took off his glasses and began crushing them in his hand. Believing he was having a seizure, Albright called 911. At that point he was no longer breathing, and she was instructed to begin CPR.
