Kelly M

On March 22, 2003, at the age of 15, Kelly was at a friend’s house when she suffered SCA.  She and two friends had just finished jumping on a trampoline and shooting baskets, and were heading into the house when Kelly collapsed.  Her friends called 911 and started CPR.  Within 2 minutes a police officer arrived and used an AED to shock her heart back into a normal rhythm.  She was taken by ambulance to a hospital where an ICD was implanted.
