Advocate Spotlight: Lisa Culbertson
More than 326,000 people in the United States suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests annually. If more people knew CPR, more lives would be saved. I am one of a few people who has performed CPR, has received CPR, and even more rare, married my lifesaver!

Survivor Spotlight: Owen Harris
Meet Owen Harris. Shortly after little Owen was born, their doctor told his family he had a very loud heart murmur and that they needed to do an EKG right away. The doctor also said she would be consulting with a pediatric cardiologist from Sioux Falls. A few days later, Owen’s parents met with the pediatric cardiologist and found out that Owen had bicuspid aortic stenosis.
