ND Roxanne Burnside Our Mission Survivor

Roxanne “Roxy” Burnside collapsed from cardiac arrest when walking in the holiday lights parade. She was saved when strangers kept her alive with CPR until a police officer arrived with an AED to restart her heart.

Doctors inserted two stents to open blocked arteries and Roxy was home on Thanksgiving Day. 

She is a grateful American Heart Association volunteer who shares her story and advocated for funding for CPR training in schools.
