Did you know that in a cardiac crisis, women are LESS LIKELY TO RECEIVE bystander CPR than men? People of color, too. That's crazy.
Since I started working for the American Heart Association, I've been dedicated to sharing with other people the importance of learning Hands Only CPR. Why? Because I didn't know how and I learned how in about 10 minutes. It's easy.
Will you commit to learning Hands Only CPR and make a donation of your choice to my Heart Walk Campaign to show your commitment?

" Members of the general public perceive fears about inappropriate touching, accusations of sexual assault, and fear of causing injury as inhibiting bystander CPR for women. Educational and policy efforts to address these perceptions may reduce the sex differences in the application of bystander CPR."
