While nearing the finish of the Toronto Half Marathon, I collapsed. Within seconds, a police officer, two off duty doctors and a trainee paramedic were on scene. …
Two paramedics on bicycles arrived carrying a portable AED which had been provided by the Mikey Network. The pads were applied and I was shocked once. My heart started and I was transported to St Mikes Hospital where a stent was introduced to my left descending artery, which had become completely blocked. I’m so thankful that Mikey AED was available.

Toronto EMS has been involved as a partner with The Mikey Network since its inception and we are proud of the work we have done together to promote the lifesaving benefits of Public Access Defibrillation.
The Mikey Network shows tremendous leadership in its efforts to place Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in as many identifies high-risk locations as possible. Generous donations of “MIKEYs” (AEDs) means that [more] sites across the GTA are equipped to respond quickly and efficiently to sudden cardiac arrests – even before emergency services arrive.

I want to thank the Mikey Network so much for providing the defibrillator for my son Alex. This device has given us much more confidence that he can attend camps and participate in many other normal activities that he otherwise would not be able to do.
The training was great and John at Action First Aid who ran the session was wonderful with the kids. We all learned a great deal and we feel much more confident to deal with any potential situations now that we have had the training! Thanks very much! We really appreciate your support.

The Mikey Network has been an awesome organization to work with. Although, thankfully, we have never had the need to use the unit, we feel better knowing it is ready and on hand. The Mikey Network has been great to Camp Can-Aquaa and I would happily recommend their product to others.

I have been a camper at Camp CanAqua for ten years. In 2010, our family donated a MIKEY AED to the camp in memory of Louis Gyori. Knowing the camp is equipped with a MIKEY AED gives everyone a level of comfort.
