My Story - Kelsey Neal
I had a cardiac arrest when I was 13 years old. My parents found me on the floor in my bedroom. At the time they did not know what happened, but they noticed that I wasn't breathing.

My Story: Ginny Curley
At 6am on Monday, July 12, 2010, my husband awoke to hear me gasping for breath. When he tried to wake me, I stopped breathing. As a healthy 42 year-old, I never expected he would have to save my life.

At the age of 34, I experienced a stroke. It was January 21, 2009 and I had the day off work and was excited to be watching the Presidential inauguration on TV. I was on the phone with my husband when I started having difficulty. I was trying to pick up a pen from my desk and just couldn’t make my hand work. Suddenly my speech became strange and slurred. I remember saying "I can't find my words" and becoming increasingly agitated. Luckily my husband David recognized that something was terribly wrong…that I wasn’t just “stressed out”!
