OPEN YOUR HEART DONATIONS
Meet Bryan and Chris, our 2022 Open Your Heart Honorees. In August of 2021, Bryan and Chris’ lives changed forever. While Bryan and a friend were cycling on a trail in Maryland, they saw Chris collapse. Jumping into action, they immediately called 911 and administered Hands-Only CPR until emergency medical services arrived.
Each year, 350,000 Americans experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and only 1 in 10 survive. Early CPR more than doubles a person’s chances of survival. Because of CPR, Chris is alive today, and he was able to see his son off to college, cheer on his daughter at her softball games, and join us at the 2022 American Heart Association Greater Washington Region Heart Ball.
