Amy has been a passionate You're the Cure advocate for several years, however, her leadership to implement CPR in schools has been instrumental in the success of this life-saving program. Recently, Amy shared with us where her passion for her volunteerism comes from and why this issue has been important in her advocacy work.

Meet Sabrina Robinson!
A hereditary blood condition called Amyloidosis broke my heart. This is a disease that will eventually attack and destroy all your organs, and it got my heart and liver before the miracles of modern medicine turned my life around.
The last thing I remember of my poetry residency at Colleton County Middle School was getting an elevator key. The next thing was seeing a strange ceiling, which turned out to be in an intensive care unit, over a week later.
Why am I an advocate? What got me started down this path?
Over twenty five years ago, I was working as a boat captain on the Long Island Sound. It was a beautiful summer day around dusk when someone collapsed near me on the dock I was operating. This man was turning blue, and after being frozen with fear I did the only thing I knew to do which was to run for help.
