Tell Us Your Story
Today, many Americans feel helpless to act during an emergency because they do not know how to administer CPR or they are afraid of hurting the victim. We want to recognize heroes that have stepped in to save a life. Thank you for performing the heroic act of CPR, a critical link in our chain of survival. You have not only helped save a life within your community, but you are also partnering with the American Heart Association to improve the survival rate of citizens who receive bystander CPR.
Please fill out this form so that the rescuer can be recognized and the AHA can keep a record of survivor stories and CPR use. Allow 7 - 10 working days for turnaround, plus adequate time for ground shipping. Please contact
Many times we receive requests to use survivor stories for AHA marketing purposes, as well as from the media, who may need a story involving someone of a certain gender, race, or age range.
AHA uses this information for future/potential marketing purposes. You will be contacted if we use your story.
We are happy to honor anyone who has assisted in any part of our chain of survival, regardless of training or outcome.
