It's Life Café time.
After something to jeer, here's something to cheer.
When Chantelle Lavallee fell to the floor and hit her head, Brian Andrade, her husband, called 911 and started CPR. Paramedics rushed to the scene.
“The doctor and the paramedics had said if [Andrade] hadn’t reacted and done what he had done, the outcome would not be the way it was, period,” she said.
“I would have been dead.”

Only weeks earlier, when Lavallee was still pregnant, the couple had taken a crash course in infant CPR, which included 10 minutes on techniques for adults.
It was a fundraiser for Jesse Arrigo whose mother used CPR to save him after he fell into a backyard pond in May 2012 when he was 10 months old. He went 55 minutes without oxygen and still needs treatment not covered by OHIP.
“I thank the whole world I took Jesse’s class,” Andrade said. “It was all because of Jesse. He was my inspiration.”This is the The Star.Com reporting Jesse's story –
Take some time out for Life Café. You're worth it!
