Javan Cruz

Just 5 percent is the chance of survival when a child suffers sudden cardiac arrest away from a hospital. Javan Cruz is among that small percentage.

Back in April, Javan suffered a total of seven sudden cardiac arrests while in his 7th grade classroom.

Thanks to quick action taken by his teacher and school nurse, he’s with us today. Javan credits his survival to the Pioneer Ridge Middle School staff, who performed CPR and used an AED.
