Dear Editor:


Sudden cardiac can happen to anyone at any time. I know this all too well as it happened to me.

June 1-7 is National CPR and AED awareness week. It’s also the week after I graduate from high school. Think how many potential lifesavers we could have if all Nebraska high schools made learning CPR a graduation requirement?

We need more people trained so other cardiac arrest victims have a second shot at life like I did. I am a survivor, but too many are not.

Iowa requires students to learn CPR and now Minnesota will as well. Now is the time for Nebraska to follow their lead. More trained equals more saved.
