I recently had the incredible opportunity to be a guest blogger for Avive Solutions, and I couldn't be more excited to share this post and business with you. Over the past several years, my passion for raising awareness about sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has grown immensely. I've become particularly dedicated to increasing accessibility to Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), those life-saving devices that can make all the difference in an SCA emergency.
In my pursuit of this mission, I've had the privilege of collaborating with some truly remarkable individuals. While many people and organizations deserve recognition for their contributions to this cause, there are a few unsung heroes who have made a significant impact. First is Representative Richard Brown, the original co-writer and sponsor of Ohio House Bill 47. His commitment to SCA awareness and AED legislation has been instrumental in moving the dial on sudden cardiac arrest awareness and the need for AEDs on all athletic fields.
Another dynamic duo that deserves more credit for their tireless efforts are Matt and Kim Mangine. They've dedicated themselves to making schools, athletic fields and facilities safer, not just in Kentucky and Ohio, but across the entire nation. It was Matt Mangine who first introduced me to Avive Solutions and was the first person I knew to purchase one of their AED devices. The Matthew Mangine Jr. Foundation is an incredible organization that I am proud and honored to support and be a volunteer.
Now, I'm thrilled to announce that we've joined forces with Avive Solutions to bring a cost-effective AED solution to Ohio. These devices are not only affordable but also crucial for ensuring the safety of athletes and anyone at risk of SCA. When paired with CPR and emergency action plans, they have the power to save lives.
The number one question I get when I say we need AEDs on every field is "But, how do we pay for them?" Avive Solutions has generously offered special pricing for Ohio Soccer Moms and Dads. If you want to take advantage of this opportunity and help make your community safer, be sure to use the link provided in this blog for a 5% discount follow this link and use the code "GOAL5". Avive is already the most affordable AED solution I have found, but this discount makes it even easier to afford.
Thank you for your continued support on this journey as we strive to raise awareness about SCA and make AEDs more accessible to everyone. Together, we can make a real difference and save lives in our communities.
