We’re happy to share that another happy family has received a MIKEY defibrillator through our Mikey’s Kids program!
Over the weekend we met with Sandy and Brian, parents of Harmony, our newest MIKEY Kid’s recipient. Above is a beautiful shot of their entire family, who were all delighted by the generosity of the gift, but none more so than Harmony who couldn’t stop smiling during our visit.
The family was very engaged and had many questions for us as we sat down to talk them about their new MIKEY. We walked them through our procedural booklet and are happy to say that they’re keen on learning more, because of which we’re currently working to set up more training opportunities with them in the future.
We’re also happy to share that Harmony’s school has an AED, which allows her family further peace of mind while she’s out of the home.
For parents with children who have heart problems, having a portable defibrillator can literally be life-saving. Knowing that an AED is on hand and ready to help save their child’s life gives so much peace of mind.
We know the first few minutes of a sudden cardiac arrest event is critical to increasing chances of survival. Our Mikey’s Kids program allows children with a high risk of SCA lead a happier, healthier and more active life. These portable MIKEYs can be taken along with them anywhere – at home, at school and at play.
