It seems like everywhere you turn these days you hear about people needing help in the form of CPR. Obviously, the topic has been in the news. Last year it was the issue surrounding Damar Hamlin and his heart attack on the field. Just this week, Lebron James' son Bronny experienced a heart attack while training for Basketball season.

With the increased awareness surrounding these incidents, it has become apparent what might not be getting through clearly is that we should all know what to do if someone needs help and CPR could make a difference.
