By learning CPR, you have the ability to give a person the fighting chance to live. Survival is in our nature and by performing CPR, you give a person that chance. Having the knowledge that you have the skills to have that much impact on someone’s life is very rewarding. It helps remove the apprehension if you are called on to use it. Not knowing CPR could leave you with regrets that you were not able to help a loved one or someone close to you in their time of need.
