February 1st, 2008 was the worst day of my life. My Mother was shopping at Walmart in Montgomery, Alabama. She fell to the ground and had a heart attack. NO ONE WOULD HELP HER. No bystanders, no employees, no one and she passed away as a result. I can’t help but to think if someone would have even tried CPR, there may be a chance that my Mother could still be with us today. She was a healthy woman, only 43 years old. She went to Walmart to buy tampons and died by the Jewelry counter. None of us saw it coming. I’m not here to point fingers or place blame. I’m here to spread awareness.
I saw this video released by the American Heart Association and think it’s worth spreading the word. Please take 1 minute and 9 seconds of your time to watch this quick video. You NEVER KNOW when you could save a life.
